Avatar for Charlotte Herzig

Charlotte Herzig


Born in 1983 in Vevey, Switzerland; lives and works in Brussels, Belgium








For the artist, painting is a limitless explosion, an immensity to be explored, a dreamlike “elsewhere”: her paintings seem to have the texture of our memories and dreams. They offer us an imaginary space behind the structured and logical domain of our daily images. Their interstice is close to the one we create when we let ourselves go to look at the clouds, to play with the sharpness of our perception by observing wallpaper, by believing that we can read in the banal and insignificant visible signs of another still enchanted place. The frame of most of her works opens with a whimsical density in which volumes, curves, and cuts are organically mixed. The colorful planes overlap and sometimes invade the exhibition spaces in vast wall compositions. The tones are fluid, and the images appear attenuated, slightly cooled. The forms seem to immerge from behind the canvas as if Herzig had painted them from the back. The paintings are made of accumulations, games, and collages, giving the audience agency to create a personalized narrative.
