Acme Studios — George Charman

Supporting Artists since 1972


George Charman

Fire Station Residency
2010-2015

George Charman’s practice is concerned with visual expectations in the representation and functionality of objects. His two- and three-dimensional sculptural works are studies in perspective, often weighing an object’s function through a flattened image against a simulated corresponding representation.

George studied at University for the Creative Arts, Farnham (BA, Sculpture, 2002–2005) and at Royal College of Art, London (MA, Printmaking, 2006–2008).

Fire Station Residency 2010-2015

Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2010-2015 artists were selected by artist and educator Cath Hawes, artist Gayle Chong Kwan, and Acme's founder and former Chief Executive Jonathan Harvey.
