About Charles Hinman

Throughout his long career, Charles Hinman has collapsed the divide between painting and sculpture. Heavily influenced by Russian Suprematism, Hinman creates abstract works, favoring color, shape, and form over literal representation. He is best known for his wall pieces, variously shaped colored canvases that he pieces together and overlaps to create complex, geometric forms. His aim, as he once described, is to create “two separate entities that play against each other, to make the piece work with real and illusionary space, thus combining two separate realms that come together and play with one another.”

American, b. 1932, Syracuse, New York
