Charlotte Cullen

Charlotte, from Walton-le-dale, Preston, recently graduated with a First Class Honours in Fine Art from Lancaster University.

Her stunning light wave paintings are created by the impasto effect of the oil paint. This technique involves the paint being applied in very thick layers to create texture; the paint appears to be coming out of the canvas.

Charlotte received the Deans prize for Fine Art 2018 (Lancaster University). The Dean was so impressed he bought one of the paintings himself!

 
‘Light Waves I’   Original Oil Painting On Canvas  Dimensions: 36” x 36”  £500.00    ‘My work explores opticality, through light, shadow, colour and pattern.  In this body of work I have focused on the illusions created through light and shadows and what effects they have on the viewer’s perception. Through large gestural brush marks, spanning across the entire width of the canvas, I explore how the surrounding light reflects onto the surface and gives  the illusion of depth and movement. The highlights and shadows, which appear to be there, are in fact just as a result of the reflecting light. I find it fascinating how we can be deceived into thinking we see something that does not actually exist in the physical world. The way that our perception can be radically distorted, superseding our logical mind.’
