My main tools for painting are domestic sponges and palette knife. Over the years these have a resonance of my paintings in miniature and impact a visual diary of my work. They instinctively create a series of abstract representations that reflect the integral components of my imagery: Time, Water & Memory.

Each individual piece offers a specific moment in the relationship and history of a painting at a unique stage giving a sense of depth, energy, fluidity and freedom within a rigid structure. Both hypnotic and aesthetic they enable the viewer to focus on an individual component or its essence as an entirety.

‘Charles Borrell’s paintings do not only offer the viewer an exceptional breathing space, but also looking at the totality of his works, one can clearly observe a constant development. His latest creations of SpongeArtWorks are a testament to his continuous pushing of boundaries where the tool has become the art in itself. These striking pieces reflect a unique and versatile artistic approach of Charles Borrell.’
