Charmis art thus shows itself to be one of the possibilities of contemporary pluralistic art tendencies. Not a "new interiority", not a relation to transcendence shows his art, but a confrontation with the here and now of total immanence, of everyday presence. But consistently his montages and installations are related to death, even his monitors are like windows in coffins, like faces on mummy coffins. In thoughts, Charmi already goes beyond life, but the impetus prevails, to shape the activities in this world humane.
