Charlotte Mew is a visual artist and poet who specialises in the spoken and written word.
Her writing which manifests itself in contemporary culture is rigorous, lyrical and by its
presentation meditative. The text, often poignant, sometimes humorous, acts as both the
inspiration and binding ingredient. Found objects that draw on memory are a source of further
inspiration often placed in such a way as to present a new dialogue.
Having studied at the Jan Van Eyck Akademie in Maastricht, Charlotte’s practise has sought to
cross language barriers and place new meaning on the overlooked LOST or forgotten. Over the
past 20 years Charlotte has built up an eclectic body of work, documenting through careful
observation a unique vision of contemporary life.
Charlotte has engaged with communities, art groups and professional practices on a wide range of
projects including Architectural and Regeneration schemes. She has a wealth of experience working with children and young adults, building confidence through mark making and developing language skills through the exploration of found materials whilst encouraging an awareness to their environment. Her work reflects the experience she has gained in a variety of fields and some of her pivotal projects include: ALDGATE UNDERGROUND (2002), THE ART OF GROWING (2008), THE SECRET GARDEN (2009) ART WALKS (2010) A PICTURE OF HEALTH (2017+), LOST AND FOUND OUT(2018) and more recently STORY TREE as part of the Chisenhale Summer of Art.
