Charles Wish - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog

Charles Wish is a Los Angeles artist best known for visually fusing American Regionalist imagery with that of 16th – 19th century South-Asia. Citing various artists of the far-east along with American painters, including Grant Wood and Thomas Hart Benton, Wish thoughtfully combines the esoteric symbolism of an age-old civilization with some of rural-America’s most selfsame symbols and scenes.
