Charlotte Cornish: 'Venturing III'

Charlotte Cornish is one of the UK's leading contemporary abstract artists. Through her strong energetic mark making, Charlotte explores the world through dramatic colour and line.

Charlotte is based in Cambridge and studied at the Slade School of Art, London. She has exhibited widely in the UK and worldwide and has work in numerous corporate and private collections.

Charlotte is fascinated by the qualities of paint, the unending possibilities of colour and colour relationships, and the potential this has to create connections and reactions. Acrylic paint is her preferred medium as this dries relatively quickly, allowing her to build up many layers of thinly poured paint, contrasting with directly applied, thicker marks. This method translates into her screen printmaking allowing her to build up layers onto her plate. She waits until each layer is dry before applying subsequent new marks to create her original prints.

She has been commissioned by a number of private and public institutions including Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge University, Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge, and many corporates. Her work is regularly exhibited at major art fairs and galleries across the UK.
