Charlie Reynolds was born at the tender age of zero, in a hospital somewhere in the middle of Maryland. His parents, a geneticist and an engineer, promptly decided that they were okay with raising an artist and took him home. Charlie discovered he loved art at a very young age, due to his incessant need to draw horses on every piece of paper placed in front of him. He followed that urge to draw and eventually made it to art school (though now he draws horses a lot less). He is pursuing his Bachelor of the Arts and majoring in General Fine Arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, which is where he currently studies.
My art deals in the mundane yet sentimental objects that populate our lives. Things that are sentimental hold value and by putting emphasis on this value and placing these objects into a space, I hope to elevate their worth to show to others how much they mean to me. Using fibers and other soft materials helps me add another layer of gentle-ness to my work. Narrative storylines and chunks of text integrated into my pieces are an important element as well, helping me tell my story as a human who needs love and affection to survive, just like everyone else.
