Charles Westgarth

Having spent much of his childhood in the company of dancers and performing artists much of Westgarth’s work explores the expressive nature and communication of dance. He captures the energy and motion of dance and translates it into elegant bird-like dancing forms.


In his latest series Westgarth focuses his attention on the elements required for creation and the devises nature employs to combat the struggle of growth in life. The organic forms twist and spiral with fluid movement and are symbolic of the progresses and setbacks in evolution as they morph and shift in space and direction.
