Charlotte explores places both recently visited or imaginary localities, bringing light to objects in the same way a traveler sees them, with fresh and new eyes. Creating numerous paintings simultaneously, resolutions for one painting might be found in another, generating a thread of narratives interwoven between her pieces. Unlike photos, memories, like repeatedly retold tales, distort and become exaggerated over time. So while painting from memory, “colors become more vivid, sounds brighter, smells sweeter. Images as well as memories combine and new worlds emerge”. Each piece becomes an idealized version of a landscape in the mind or a place long-ago visited to be visually remembered forever. Charlotte’s style is distinctive, colors bold, and narratives soft enough for us to feel yet bring our own allowing into paintings into beautiful & collaborative story.
Charlotte studied fine art at Byam Shaw at Central St. Martins, UAL in London. She now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She has shown extensively in the UK and at international art fairs and more recently, in New York in both solo and group shows. Her work is held in public and private collections around the globe including that of the UBS bank and the Imperial College Healthcare Charity Art Collection in the UK.
