Charlotte Searle is a multidisciplinary artist who explores fictional multiplicities and knotty, entangled themes that refuse a definitive answer. She is interested in surreal domestic horror and the dissociated body concerning place and non-place. Exploiting ritual, rites of passage, the space between birth and death, pleasure and consumer culture, she harnesses the subconscious whilst inviting an unsettling awkwardness. Charlotte’s practice employs messy irreverent methods of work, cherishing mistake and humour. The works attempt to subsume you, using a nauseating saturation that vacillates with abject imagery. Using language and moving image as mode of fictioning to explore various ways of communicating alternate worlds is a key aspect of her practice; convincing, jarring and manipulating the viewer’s concept of thereness.
