Based in Portland, Oregon, with roots in small town Minnesota, Charlie Wilcox is a designer, embroiderist, filmmaker, writer, and tubist. In combining these practices, he uses 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, with shows at the Hallberg Center for the Arts in Wyoming, MN and PLACE Studios in Portland, OR, following. He spends business hours at Reed College as an Administrative Coordinator (and de facto Graphic Designer) for the performing arts departments and is working towards a Master’s Degree in Design Systems from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. When he’s not doing all that, he’s probably trying out different punch recipes for his friends.
