Charlotte trained as a theatre designer and worked extensively in London designing sets and costumes on productions that won several Edinburgh Fringe First Awards. On moving to Somerset she was inspired by its natural beauty and painted landscapes. During her Fine Art Masters at Bath Spa she was motivated to make political pieces that reflected the state of the Syrian refugees. Working in fibres and felt she made large-scale textiles works. She enjoys experimenting in many mediums, including sculpture, installations, film and photography.
Charlotte Humpston’s work often reflects moods and atmospheres of places and events. Seen here are a series of photographs taken from an installation made in response to the novella ‘The Aspern Papers’ by Henry James. Set in Venice, the images reflect the watery and dark atmosphere that pervades the city and the hidden secrets of the novel’s main character.
All works are for sale.
