Charles Frizzell claims a special relationship with the earth and a bond with Indian cultures that is projected in his work. Although a Kentucky born Caucasian with only a touch of Cherokee in his blood, Charles Frizzell respectfully and vividly demonstrated Indian lore in his art. The Native American influence seen in our comes from a spiritual and ancestral kinship. I am strongly attracted to the artwork of the American Indians, which was never designed to hang in museums, but became a part of daily and spiritual life. I borrow images, symbols and artifacts to help generate within our work a response to the need for balance in the relationship of ourselves to the planet and the creator.
