Charlotte Bracegirdle Lecture
In conjunction with her exhibition in Schneider Hall Galleries, Charlotte Bracegirdle will present a lecture in Chao Auditorium. Bracegirdle's small paintings depict direct scenes from Old Master paintings. She paints on found images, old postcards or book illustrations. Devoid of their central visual element, the paintings seek to echo the subtle traces that we leave behind. Bracegirdle explains, ‘When a person no longer occupies a space everything appears different, but visually nothing is altered. Everything looks, smells and feels, as it was when that person was there. The pictures become empty stages, deserted and uncanny – left only with hints of past activity.’ The artist completed an MA at the Royal College of Art in 2006, after a BA in Fine Art from Southampton Institute. Bracegirdle was the Beck’s Canvas winner in 2008, was awarded the Davis Langdon Award Exhibition and was shortlisted for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2007 and Young Masters Art Prize in 2009. The artist has exhibited internationally with The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, London.
