Charles Dickson is a prolific artist who is widely known as a public artist with the ability to create studio works ranging from assemblage, functional art and sculptures using various materials such as wood, found objects, metal, and glass. During the creative process Charles Dickson imagines the raw materials before him being transformed into images, elements and shapes that will represent and symbolize the essence of the concept he envisions. Through this rendering process a metaphor will emerge illustrating how he seeks to convey and represent his views about a particular subject. Dickson creates five "metaphors" in the form of sculptures consisting of various mediums to transform the space, tell a story and engage the viewer through whimsical visual designs.
