Artist Profile: Sandra Charles
Sandra Charles is a Louisville-based artist who began her career in batik fiber work before returning for her B.F.A. from the University of Louisville. Since then, she has focused on figurative painting that depicts exclusively Black women. In her own words: “Each painting focuses on the expressions that represent our history, expectations, self image and the essence that lies behind the facade of society’s perceptions. My paintings attempt to capture the removal of the hegemonic veil which covers the struggle between self and the perceived social order.”
