Trained in the field of trompe l’oeil and fresco, Belgian contemporary painter CHARLOTTE BEAUDRY comes late to the world of art, without any particular strategy.

Through her contemporary and radical vision of a certain femininity, she introduces a variety of subjects. Her art is figurative, but not realistic: as often in her work, it is through dissimulation or by the subtraction of details that the intensity of the painting reveals itself.

She departs from photographs she makes herself or downloads from the internet. Usually she focuses on a certain idea she explores from the perspective of the painter in a series of works. She translates certain shapes and images in a personal style, highlighting particular aspects, revealing specific features and linking these with a certain atmosphere or emotion. CHARLOTTE BEAUDRY avoids to insert a narrative element in her work. She seeks to confront us with powerful images that have a direct impact, without telling a story. She wants people to approach her works as a direct impulse that represents a powerful statement about the icon-like image and about the painting itself as the pictorial translation of this impulse.

And good news: you can view her work in person at Gallery Von Bartha Garage in Basel from today (Opening: May 7, 2010 / 6:00pm – 8:00pm) until May 14, 2010. See you there!

And if you can’t come in Basel, I really encourage to view more at
