Charlotte Cornish’s prints are all limited edition original prints. Each print has been made from a series of her own hand painted stencils, one for each colour printed. The resulting image exists only in its printed form; there is no ‘original’ from which the print has been copied, as with some printing techniques.
Charlotte Cornish’s personal experiences and the imagery collected from travelling aboard are then gradually abstracted through the process of execution and emotional response. She makes prints using a range of printmaking techniques, mainly screen printing, but also etching. Very recently, she combined the processes of lithography and screen printing in the new series.
Charlotte Cornish regularly exhibits her paintings and prints, selling to both private and corporate customers. A large part of her practice is engaged with commissioned work, working with numerous art consultancies and galleries, producing work for commercial and domestic environments.
“The dominant theme of my work is the nature of human experience. Creating tensions and harmonies through the use of colour and form, I try to communicate visually a sense of what it feels like to be alive.” Charlotte Cornish
