Mien and Method: The complex foolishness of Miami's Western Charles

Weinstein, Joel
July 2004
Art Papers Magazine;Jul/Aug2004, Vol. 28 Issue 4, p18
The article features the career and work of artist Westen Charles. It has been noted that Charles takes pride in his contrarian, anti-market and, downright off-putting objects and paintings. He is one of the few young Miami, Florida artists who works consistently against the careerist grain. This success probably has to do with his curious ideas, his taste for nostalgically pleasing colors and his really good hands and attention to detail.
