Based in Portland Oregon, with roots in small town Minnesota, Charlie Wilcox is an embroiderist and filmmaker. He is most interested in the nexus of these two practices, using the constraints of a hand-embroidery approach to examine the possibilities and test the limits of stop-motion animation. The first gallery show of his work took place in May 2022 at Dorsa Brevia Art Gallery in Portland. He holds a degree in English Literature from Reed College, where he now spends business hours as an Administrative Coordinator for the performing arts departments (and a few others as well) and is working towards a Master’s Degree in Design Systems from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. While not embroidering, Charlie stays busy writing two novels-in-progress, playing tuba and bass in sporadic noise-rock quartet Horsebag, reading >100 books a year, and trying out different punch recipes for his friends.
