About the event
Matter Studio Gallery, 5080 W. Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, is excited to announce an Opening Reception for Charles Dickson's solo exhibition “All Substance Matters” on October 9th, 2022, 4pm to 8pm at the gallery. The exhibit will run from October 9, to November 6th, 2022.
Charles Dickson. Master Sculptor. Master Innovator. Master Creator. Masterfully using materials one might find impossible to manage to create extraordinary works of art spanning over 65 years. Charles was a child prodigy. “I started carving when I was five. By the time I was eight, I was under the blanket with a flashlight, chipping away at wood. They couldn’t stop me from whittling even though I was allergic to the materials.” Dickson has always created art; he is a master at hand-carving acrylic, wood, and stone and also works with metal. He created a form of plastic he calls HISPUF and recently created a photography process he calls “Photo Alchemy”. Some call him genius. At an early age he was considered a master sculptor. His classmates at Fremont High School in Watts called him “little Michelangelo”. Dickson considers himself a “divinely inspired” artist.
