Charlotte Cornish

Charlotte Cornish

Charlotte Cornish is a well established artist producing prints and paintings. The dominant theme of her work is the nature of human experience. Creating tensions and harmonies through the use of colour and form.

Much of the initial inspiration for Charlotte’s work comes from places she has visited and have significance to her. Often using photographs as a starting point, and as the compositions develop, combining elements taken from the photographs with imagery drawn from personal experience. Charlotte is fascinated by the possibilities of colour and colour relationships and the infinite potential they have to create dynamic connections and reactions.

Charlotte Cornish uses acrylic paint for her paintings as it dries relatively quickly. I like to build up numerous layers of poured paint in thin veils, which contrast with more thickly applied paint, creating a raised surface on the canvas. Waiting until the paintings are dry before applying each subsequent new mark allows her the opportunity to remove or modify painted areas, without affecting the preceding layers. I work with the canvases flat on the floor for much of the time. The paintings take at least eight weeks to complete.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
