Charlie Sandeman (he/him/they/them) is a multi-disciplinary artist primarily working in ceramics, photography, and printmaking. His work explores his life experiences as a queer trans person with mental illness. Whether its exploring his gender identity and what that means to him, or reflecting on experiences navigating the health care system as transgender and bipolar, clay allows Charlie to play with the constant push of trying to live as authentically as he can and feeling the need to conform to society’s expectations of his experience. Through form and colour he expresses the polarity and union of joy and depression, fitting in and sticking out, and trying to find a way through a world that doesn’t understand him.
