WALK into any room featuring Charlotte Latham's work and her beautifully blurry world literally stands out.
Ink, wax and various metals have all made it into Charlotte's canvases and sculptures, yet one of the few materials she does not use – pure water – infuses all her imagery. It is there in her earthy snow, rotting leaves and rainswept cityscapes, in her glassy bubbles and polished polka dots and of course in her Waterbuds collection with its mouthwatering melding of molten mango, lime and raspberry colours. Her stunning oils, meanwhile, have a metallic sheen as though rendered in mercury or glimpsed through the sheets of a rainstorm.
Charlotte was born in North Devon and spent several years in Germany before returning to England to study fine art. Throughout her studies she spent time working with international artists in California and this both inspired and influenced much of her work.
Her art has been exhibited in galleries throughout the UK and is held in private and corporate collections in Britain and overseas.
