About

British artist creating intuitive, layered & textured abstracts feat the ocean, clouds, moon & natural world.

Charlotte Keating, a contemporary artist based in the Forest of Dean creates intuitive abstract paintings imbued with the watery sense of the ocean and natural elements of the sky, subconsciously influenced by her coastal upbringing and passion for sailing and the sea. Her paintings are infused with contrasting movement, energy, texture and colours all stemming from an immersive soulful process of abstract expressionism.

After achieving a degree in Art & Design and a further BA (hons) in Fashion Design in 2000, Charlotte pursued a successful career in the fashion industry with her own clothing label. In 2018 she made a conscious effort to approach life at a slower, more intuitive, pace using painting as a form of expression and therapy to overcome and manage physical pain.

Charlotte’s expressive Moonscapes explore the cyclical and contrary phases of life and human nature; our search for balance, flow and uplifting positivity in a tenacious bid to overcome the darker, negative experiences that we are inevitably faced with in life. She translates the chaotic downdrafts of life experiences into deep, sweeping crashing waves and dark textured bleeding bases contrasting against the rising positivity of human nature as depicted by energetic splatters, soft pastel calligraphy and multi-layered transparent washes. Charlotte’s use of blue resonates with her sense of soul with the darker hues of blue rendering the depths of spirit whilst the pinks and golds often relate to love and balance.

The Mers Lunaires series captures these oceans of emotion within a moon. The pieces often start with words, marks and floods of colour as part of the intuitive process of expressing feelings or thoughts in an abstract way. Layers of paint and different media are then skilfully built up to depict a release of energy or feelings which can range from trepidation to excitement, depression to utter bliss. Viewers are invited to immerse themselves in the textures and contrasting themes to awaken their own emotions and elicit a response which resonates with them - hopefully finding a sense of peace and hope amongst the chaos.

Charlotte’s small works on paper are filled with lightness, energy and sense of freedom whilst the larger canvases offer a more contained perspective with a deeper, tactile sense of emotion embedded in the layers.
