He has received fellowships from the Bush Foundation, Jerome Foundation, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. Charles has participated in artist residencies located in: Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Ireland, and the US.
His art has been reviewed at: The Irish Times; Art Papers; Contemporary Visual Culture in Ireland; National Public Radio; Koti-Lappi; Hyperallergic.com; and, BeautifulDecay.com.
