Talk by Charlotte Sorapure
March 21 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM GMT
Charlotte was awarded a BA at Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Art and Design in 1991. She then went on to study at the Royal Academy of Arts under the keepership of Norman Adams RA, where she received a Post Graduate Diploma in Painting. She has exhibited in London, Bath, Oxfordshire, Canada, and recently a group show in the USA. Her list of portrait commissions include that of the war photographer Don McCullin for The Holburne Museum and her work is included in a number of both private and corporate collections.
“Paintings often feed off one another. It can be helpful to switch from observation to invention, as the objectivity of one and the lyricism of the other remind me that good paintings need to have elements of both.
I am usually hinting at a kind of poetic awareness rather than any literal narrative – to hopefully give the viewer a sense of the underlying mood and character of a place or an object. It is a case of being constantly alert to the possibilities in potential subjects; from a humble still life, to figures or the patterns and movements in nature.”
