Charlotte Cornish explores ways of communicating how it feels to be alive, through her work. Using the relationship between colours and forms and their power to evoke emotional and psychological responses.

Charlotte Cornish’s combines the distinct qualities of etching and silkscreen printing to demonstrate a dynamic quality rarely seen in prints.

Charlotte Cornish was born in Cambridge in 1967. She studied Printmaking at the University of Brighton (1986–1990) and went on to study Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art, London in 1992. She now lives and works in East Anglia.  Charlotte’s paintings and prints all have figurative starting points. She has always found inspiration from places she has visited and she often uses photographs as an initial starting point for her compositions. Yet, her paintings are not representations of places, but are a mixture of elements from the seen world, and her own emotional responses and experience.

Fascinated by the unending possibilities of colour, and the potential this has to create connections and reactions, she like working on acrylic paint which is her preferred medium. As it dries relatively quickly, it allows her to build up many layers of thinly poured paint, and to remove or modify painted areas, without affecting the preceding layers.

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

I wait until the paintings are dry before applying subsequent new marks. This allows me to remove or modify painted areas, without affecting the preceding layers. The paintings take about eight weeks to complete.” – Charlotte Cornish
