FACULTY SPOTLIGHT: INSTALLATIONS BY LOUL SAMATER AND JAROD CHARZEWSKI

Loul Samater and Jarod Charzewski are visiting instructors in the Studio Art Department at the College of Charleston. Both artists will create large scale installations made from discarded materials creating environments that evoke the questions about our use of space and the physical debris we accumulate or refuse.

Artist Statement
My images/objects are derived from memories I have of growing up outside of America. While some of my memories have been altered and some others have been left intact, and I use these in my work to evoke contradictory emotions and intense feelings ranging from celebration to panic.

I often choose materials that connote parties: balloons, glitter, etc. Taking these materials out of their usual context creates a tension where the viewer does not know if the party is yet to begin or has already ended. To the viewer it seems time has stopped or drained from the situation. The viewer becomes the only person in the scene, and even they aren’t a so much a participant as an unwilling spectator.
