Charles Monkhouse is an artist working in rural and public spaces and with their communities. He produces both dramatic temporary light installations and permanent sculptures for the landscape.
Typical of these projects are: Night Stations, a series of light installations across land, often of a vast scale, that reveal features that are hidden by the light of day; Sites of Meaning, working with parishioners of Middleton and Smerrill to mark the seventeen entrances to their parish; and Companion Stones, devised and led for Arts in the Peak, working with poets and artists to pair twelve Derbyshire guide stoops with matching stones bearing directions for the future.
