Charlotte Edey

Sea View - Charlotte Edey Spiraling Crop 2023.jpg

Charlotte Edey (b.1992, Manchester) is a visual artist based in London. Her work explores selfhood through the disembodying of subjects, examining the shifting historical, spiritual and environmental realms that shape and inform the plurality of identity. With a process rooted firmly in drawing, her textile and sculptural works expand on this drawn language. Mark-making and gesture are translated through extensive hand-embroidery and beading on tapestry, forging direct relationships between line and thread. She employs found objects and artist frames as narrative devices to blur the boundary between the real and the represented, forming portals to imagined otherworlds that reflect on the interior.
