American (Syracuse, N.Y., 1932)
Charles Hinman’s work operates in the area between the illusionary space of the picture
plane and the three-dimensional space of sculpture. Teaching himself carpentry and
engineering techniques, Hinman began to construct shaped canvases that projected from
the wall. During the 1960s, he exhibited frequently in exhibitions with minimalist
sculptors including Donald Judd, Carl Andre and Robert Morris and geometric and Op
artists like George Ortman and Larry Poons. His lithograph for Artists & Writers Protest
is not a protest piece. It is a two-dimensional expression of his artistic concerns.
