CHARLES ROMULO CORRIEA ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

A native son of San Francisco, California, Corriea manipulates found objects, Victorian forms, plastic model kits and exotic Dresden paper incorporating icons of war, religion and identity into a delicate harmony of assemblage sculpture.

Watching his native city crumble from a creative hub into a tech dystopia has fueled the dark, itinerant visual tension that permeates his work. With a life long interest and study of Japanese traditional and pop art as a base, Corriea has woven the Japanese visual narrative of apocalypse and gothic style together to arrive at an unstable idea of "home". This instability invites the viewer to explore the minute details of each sculpture as the cycles of religion, war, and oppression tie the viewer to Corriea's own exploration of these themes
