Charlotte Ivey is a visual artist born in 1984, Christchurch, Aotearoa/New Zealand.
Charlotte studied Philosophy of Art at University of Canterbury, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts. She now resides in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia.
Ivey’s work reaches from literal representation of the human form in portraiture to abstractions that explore the relationship between emotion and the physical body. Through colour and mark-making she expresses tension between the traditionally ‘beautiful’ and ‘distasteful’. Her latest work explores psychological dysphoria by pulling places and objects into a space of fragmentation - where the real and imagined exist in a state of confusion.
Her studio is situated at 23a Studios, Brunswick, Melbourne, Australia.
