|Charles Grogg is an American contemporary artist and photographer. He currently resides in southern California, producing fractured photographic images printed in platinum and palladium on handmade Japanese washi which are restitched into whole images and frequently feature tethers, sutures or other three dimensional productions. The resulting images focus on issues of growth and restraint, hesitation and power.
Grogg's photographic genealogy includes the early Vik Muniz, Robert W. Fichter, and Thomas Barrow, as well as Andy Warhol's sewn multiples. His work has been published in a variety of photograph-focused periodicals including Elephant, LensWork, B&W, View Camera, Black & White Photography (U.K.), and Silvershotz, and resides in prominent institutional collections in the United States. He is Associate Professor of English at Santa Barbara City College (CA), where he has taught since 1998.
