Charlotte Swiden with two works from her upcoming show at Modern Times, 'Foundations'.

Charlotte’s disciplined approach to composition and colour, honed as a graphic designer, has transmuted into something softer and closer to nature with this series of abstract paintings that pulsate with motifs of plants, primitive figures and intimations of landscape, rendered in a muted earthen palette.

This return to painting for Charlotte – and her first solo art exhibition – marks a nod to her foundations, and an exciting moment in her career trajectory.

Foundations is about returning home and letting my inner voice resurface. It’s a journal of human behaviour, roots, new leaves and a longing for nature.”
