CHARLES CARVER

Background

Charles Carver started his career straddling the worlds of art and science. In his role as research assistant for a Weill Medical College of Cornell University molecular neurobiology research team, he participated in both laboratory benchwork and scientific illustration for the purposes of communicating the research efforts. Eventually, he was responsible for the implementation of a new computer graphics department, which led ultimately to a freelance career and further experimentation with the digital environment as a set of tools for the creative dialogue between an artist and their developing work. After receiving awards for digital art and gaining exposure in a number of fine-art publications, as well as the book "Secrets of Award-Winning Digital Artists", Charles opened Eye and Mind Studio in New Paltz, New York. Eye and Mind Studio brought together his primary interests of artistic creation and philosophy of mind, not from the academic stance that often seeks to emulate the objective perspective of the scientific method (as if outside the system), but in the phenomenologically rich descriptive sense of direct experience, as is the purview of the artist, musician, or mindfulness practitioner. In time, Eye and Mind Studio has closed its doors, however, the basic thrust of the two-sided subject matter and the creative tension between them, has led to the Anxious-Buddha website.

Charles Carver lives and works in New Paltz, NY, close by the Shawangunk Mountains, known locally as the Gunks. Besides being a digital artist, he is an avid photographer especially of the nearby landscape.
