Description

About the artwork
'Double Trouble Cat Crackers' comes from Charlotte's latest body of work which is inspired by vintage tins and packaging.*Framing available upon request*A love for collections underpins her work, as she explains in our recent exclusive artist interview:"The collections I like aren’t always conventional ones – they could be tropical birds or jungle animals, sounds or circus performers.Having said that I do like travel souvenirs such as snow globes (they’re perfect little miniature worlds) and also stamps (to me they’re mini works of art and they also can feel exotic as they’re from all over the world and so spark memories of travel just like the snow globes). I also went to the Museum of Packaging in Ladbroke Grove last year so currently I’m really into vintage packaging, especially tins.Looking at that list makes me realise there’s definitely an aspect of nostalgia and memory in my work. That’s something I notice when I see how people react to my work."- Charlotte Farmer, 2019

About Charlotte Farmer

Charlotte Farmer is a screen printer and illustrator with a love of colour and fine detail. Specialising in illustration at Central Saint Martins, Charlotte’s vibrant and playful screenprints retain a sense of storytelling and humour that encompass her distinctive style.

Her multi-layered prints often involve collections; from snowglobes, pottery figures or matchboxes, to tropical birds and animals. As well as conjuring a sense of nostalgia and memory, the collections bring together unexpected combinations of objects and characters that begin to speak to each other, developing unforeseen “mini” narratives in the work. Charlotte not only embraces dazzlingly bright colours, but also experiments with additional flourishes such as glow in the dark ink, or gold details which only add to the unique and spirited personality of her practice.

“I love the drama of it all! In my Paprika Tins ‘Hot Stuff’ print you’ve got a moustachioed man holding a plate of fish next to a young Hungarian girl collecting her paprika, and I think to myself, ‘What are they saying to each other?“
