Exploiting the rich allure of oil paint, Charlotte paints abstract figurative scenes referencing the artificial, and subtly depicting the cost of our addiction to novelty, convenience, and instant gratification. Her unplanned paintings are driven by a refusal to accept the prevalent fears and anxieties we, in countries like Australia, are surrounded by despite living in a context of such abundance.

Charlotte is studying a Bachelor of Fine Art (painting) at RMIT, and has been exhibiting her works in Melbourne, Brisbane and Geelong since 2021. With a background in mass communication and visual communication design, Charlotte’s fascinated by the conflicting grip consumer culture has on us, and how this grip is largely leveraged through consumerism’s cleverly enticing visual codes.
