Being brought up in the Middle East has had a profound effect on artist Charlotte Amison.

Charlotte who is exhibiting at the cornerHOUSE arts centre in June, says the vibrant colourful culture and the strong use of primary colours in the region's decor and interiors is reflected in her striking canvases.

“Without a doubt, this has had a profound effect on my relationship with colour and the way I use it within my work - and the way I see the world,” she explained.

Charlotte's eponymous show is a mixture of canvases and paintings on board with wooden frames.

Each piece depicts the exploration of the relationship between mood and colour.

“They are on a large scale so that the viewer may be consumed by the colour and explore their own moods through the painting,” she said.

The Tolworth artist specialises in painting abstract expressionism, focusing on colour in its purest form. The bright vivid palette in each of the works is intended to catch your eye and draw you into the painting.

Charlotte, who has exhibited at the arts centre in Douglas Road, Tolworth, last year as well as other Surrey venues including Room for Art in Cobham, paints in acrylic and varnish. All the pieces are for sale and prices range from £100 to £1,700.

There will be a gala evening on Friday, May 29, to open the show. Charlotte will be there to discuss her work and answer any questions. The event starts at 7.30pm and all are welcome.

The exhibition entitled Charlotte Amison, runs at the cornerHOUSE until June 26.
