Charles Zuill has a BA in Art and Art History from Atlantic Union College in Massachusetts, an MFA in Painting and Printmaking from the Rochester Institute of Technology and a PhD in Art Theory and Criticism from New York University.
He is a Founding Trustee of the Bermuda National Gallery and has taught art at various institutions, including Bermuda College, for over 50 years. He has been the art critic at The Royal Gazette since 2007.
Most of Zuill’s artistic creations are exploratory, experimental and interdisciplinary; a means for learning. His 2022 Bermuda Biennial artworks explore the use of a mixture of materials and creative tools. The primary material is iron oxide which is mixed with matte acrylic medium and placed on a thin plywood panel. This then is placed on powerful magnets and moved about until the desired configuration is achieved.
Most of his work is landscape based, and this year’s submissions likewise suggest examples of life in the sea around us.
