The Concept Behind Charlotte Roseberry’s Paintings
Charlotte graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a First Class Honours Degree in 2013 and now lives in the Scottish Borders with her husband and children. The painter explores ideas around graphic surrealism. Compounding ambient colours with sporadic 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 artist creates symbolic systems, often hinting at transport and voyage, that vehicle the concept of the human journey.
