Charlie Bonallack


With the ubiquitous digital image taking centre stage and the decline of the printed photograph, Charlie presents the printed photograph through painting and installation as a thin receipt or a fossil…a half truth, a trace, possibly a clue to the past.


After studying fine art at Reading University 1988-1991 under Richard Wilson, Ron Haseldon and Rose Finn-Kelcey, Charlie taught art for three years and then moved abroad in 1994 for several years to live in Prague, Lisbon and London, where he worked as an artist, designer, art director and photographer. In 2004 Charlie moved to Montpellier, France, where he lives with his partner and their three boys.
