Off The Wall

Charlotte’s latest work is painted on wire mesh, and hung up in the gallery space – off the wall! The paintings hover in the space and you can walk round them, yet they are not sculptures. They are re-workings of old master paintings and clues will be available as to what the originals actually are. But they are new beautiful works in their own right and you will enjoy spending some time in their strange unworldly presence.

Bridges - Charlotte Moore and Martin Kalberer, 2013

As in their previous exhibition Empty Chairs, Charlotte and Martin have again collaborated on a particular theme: this time the subject is bridges.

The word ‘bridge’ has been used metaphorically in a variety of ways, from bridging the earthly with the divine, to more colloquial uses such as ‘bridge over troubled water’.  The works in this exhibition explore the forms and symbolism of bridges in wood, clay and print.

Empty Chairs

A collaborative exhibition of prints by Charlotte Moore and sculptures by furniture maker Martin Kalberer was held at the Bath Artists’ Studio Gallery 19th - 22nd May 2011.

The commonplace chair is easily taken for granted in everyday life. But to see the chair simply as a piece of furniture is to overlook its metaphorical and allegorical power.
