We look forward to welcoming you to the next exhibition opening in the Gallery, WYRMS, a solo exhibition by abstract painter Charlotte Roseberry, which includes new and recent paintings,as well as a new lithographic work.
Powerful, volatile and yet carefully considered, Charlotte's conceptual oil paintings and experimental drawings intermingle semi-organic forms with bright, block colours. With delicate drops of humour, too, her works are a potent blend of symbolism and self-reflection.
Using colour and outbursts of geometric shapes, Charlotte taps into the instability of our place in the universe. Flat, expansive spaces and monolithic patterns and contours appear throughout her work.
The work in this show was created during a tumultuous yet explorative time in the artist’s life. The work reflects the desire to pursue origins of personal suffering and the intention of digging deep within the subterranean landscape of one’s own psyche to weed out fatal roots.
As well as new and recent oil paintings, WYRMS includes a new lithographic work, which Charlotte made at Edinburgh Printmakers after being awarded VACMA funding by Creative Scotland earlier this year.
Charlotte is based in the Scottish Borders, and works from a studio nearby. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a First Class Honours degree in 2013, has exhibited at the RSA’s Annual Exhibition, and is the recipient of a number of prestigious awards, including The Andrew Grant Bequest Scholarship, The Bothy Project Prize and The Edinburgh University Collections Prize.
She was selected for The New Contemporaries and New Scottish Artists at the Fleming Collection, London, and has been published in The Catlin Guide: New Artists in the UK. She is a professional member of the Scottish Society of Artists and Visual Arts Scotland. WYRMS is her fourth solo show to date.
To complement the exhibition, a selection of Parian ware ceramics by Edinburgh-based ceramicist Natalie Wood will also be on display.
