If you think about the precision, elegance and eloquence of what Swan Lake may conjure for you, there are actually dark passages to that. If you take that narrative source at its root, there is something crazy and something wild about it too, as a story. There’s a dark, certain kind of psychological complexity of it that I think the artist is getting at, certainly.”
Brinda Kumar, Associate Curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, speaking of Swan Lake by Charles Compo

“With a paintbrush as his instrument—and a personalized iconography of loose forms and dreamy cool colors as his catalog of musical notes—Compo creates visual art that utilizes the same improvisational intuition, technical expertise, and audience interaction skills he learned as a professional musician.”
