Charles Ginnever is an American sculptor. He started working with canvas and steel scraps painted with bright patterns. His movement toward Minimalism saw the use of color fade and he focused on steel shapes consisting of triangles and trapezoids. This cause his work to change shape as the viewer moves around it. He was a founding member of ConStruct, an artist-owned gallery that promoted and organized large-scale sculpture exhibitions throughout the United States. Other founding members were John Raymond Henry, Kenneth Snelson, Lyman Kipp and Mark di Suvero.
