Plot Summary

The Gospel According to Charlie concerns the gay outsider artist Charlie Van Ness. Over the course of eight years, we see Charlie's journey from creating whimsical heart, lip, star, and penis-shaped sculptures out of fiberglass and resin to creating installation art to carving mythical stories into hundreds of stone tablets. The documentary is the story of Charlie's personal transformation as he grapples with the intent of his artistic expressions and the purpose of his life. How can Charlie's evolution as an artist be explained? What demons drive him to destroy over thirty years worth of his artistic output? Director David Bussan's narration guides us through scenes. His observational commentary acts as a counterpoint to Charlie's life on his brother's farm.
