Art Gallery & Bespoke Picture Framers

Charlotte Durie

Charlotte grew up in a literary family and she tells her stories through her cityscapes. The urban landscape enthrals her; what it hides and how human dramas permeate the streets.


Charlotte's fascination for film noir informs much of this work too; the excitement is in the shadows accentuating the loneliness of inhabitants - one always wants to know more. Charlotte has to know these streets and to have an emotion with them; only through this connection will the work be completed.


Charlotte uses Sennelier pastels, both soft and oil, as she loves their high colour pigmentation. Charlotte is very tactile with her work; using her fingers to blend as well as a variety of tools to give texture and shape. Being able to experiment is essential in keeping her practise fresh.


Charlotte loves becoming immersed with the creation of each work and feel as though she has lived within them.
