Charles Hinman was introduced to the New York art scene in 1964 in a show at the Sidney Janis Gallery titled SEVEN NEW ARTISTS. His work, which escaped the rectangle from the start, was noticed by Richard Feigen, and he joined Feigen's gallery shortly thereafter. During the next half dozen years with Feigen, his canvasses became three-dimensional, and they have been distinguished by these shapes ever since. The exposure at Feigen resulted in his being collected by many distinguished private collectors as well as a number of major museums in the United States and around the world. Later, he joined the Galerie Denise Rene' where he began to exhibit in Europe also, represented by Denise Rene' in New York and in Paris and Hans Mayer in Dusseldorf. He produced editions of prints with Denise Rene' in Paris and with Domberger in Germany. After Denise Rene closed her New York gallery and returned to Paris, he has continued to exhibit his work in galleries and museums in the United States and abroad. His work has been written about by numerous art critics and writers.

<Artist statement>
My paintings are an effort to establish a visual language through a personal vocabulary of forms which are three-dimensional canvas objects. These objects make a real space, but overlapping planes, the space made by colors juxtaposed, and a linear configuration that suggests perspective, all work together to form an illusory space.

I enjoy the ambiguous visual dialogue between actual space and illusion. There is play between that which we perceive to be the sculpture object and the imaginary flat plane of the paiting space. The one constantly qualifies the other visually.

I have predilections for that kind of form which is buoyant, soaring, and free of gravity. The sahpes often appear to be wing-like or cantilevered.

The double curved surface movement of the canvas is a formal element as expressive as any other formal element such as shape, mass, line or color.

It is easy to identify with the taut canvas membrane over the wood frame, which is like our skin over bones. However, the abstract pictorial space is beyond our physical reach. Distances are not measured, and the scale is limitless.
