About the Artist: Charlotte Culot was born in Belgium into a family of artists. From childhood, drawing was part of her universe. During her university studies in Archeology and History of Art, she discovered photography.
Passionate about materials and colors, she embarked on research into walls throughout the world. Her eye was formed and by this contact: structure of space, chromatic enrichment, a taste for detail leading to abstraction: all these elements were to be the source from which she would draw inspiration for future work as a painter.
In 1988 she qualified in Archeology and History of art with a thesis on traditional earth vernacular architecture in West Africa.
In 1990 she began to paint.
Using mainly brown kraft paper to work on , she refound the gouaches, pigments and pastels from her childhood. Her taste for materials and textures led her onto the technique of collage. In time , colour has become the structural-subject space and major theme of her quest.
”Subject-object” gradually gives way to what might probably appear beyond or the “emerging force” through the bias for the color and material.
Since 1990, Charlotte Culot exhibits in europe and since 1994 in the USA.
