Further Biographical Context for Inuk Charlie
Inuk Charlie was born in 1956 and was largely influenced creatively by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and development in the arts, most often defined as a response to the central strains of the previous decade. Conceptual art emerged as a key movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork into the expansive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal considerations, creating esoteric and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain prominence for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years prior, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly powerful figures worldwide. A number of the artists who gained fame and successful in the 1960s remained leading figures. For example, Andy Warhol branched out into film and magazine publishing, the first type of pan cultural activity for a visual artist. This secured his reputation as a globally renowned celebrity in his own right. n Japan and Korea, artists associated with the Mono-Ha movement focused on encounters between natural and industrial materials such as stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, arranging them in mostly unaltered, ephemeral states. The works focused on the interdependency of these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong interest in the European philosophy of phenomenology.
