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.Current Artworks Download Full Biography
