The Art of Charlotte MannJuxtapoz // Friday, 25 Feb 2011
Charlotte Mann is a British artist who creates wall drawings and drawn room installations. They are described as "densely detailed 1:1 scale drawings of rooms in rooms are invariably made with thick black marker pen on a white ground."
Charlotte Mann says of her work: "I'm fascinated by the paradox of attempting to represent an environment with depth, life-sized but in two dimensions. The question of scale therefore is always based on the viewers physical proximity. The same is true of how perspective functions in my drawings. There can be no single, fixed point of view, so perspective is resolved for each object or grouping or area. Looking at the work, especially the long walls such as the Clarient commission, becomes a combination of seeing the wall as a whole and scaning across the surface."
