‘Affect’ now showing at Saint Cloche Gallery

Overwhelmed by the positive respons to my solo show ‘Affect’, sold out in less than a week! To Kitty Clark, so grateful for the opportunity to show my work at your beautiful gallery Saint Cloche. Feeling a bit teary seeing all the paintings hung together. It’s hard to say good bye but I’m so excited thinking of the lives they will live in their new homes.

Thankful to all of you who bought a piece of ‘me’. For all of you who show your support, for listening to my imagery, for sharing the love. You make it possible for me to keep following my passion!

‘Affect’ is open until the 12th of March.

Interview The Design Files | ‘Artist Charlotte Swiden’s Solo Sydney Exhibition Is A Love Letter To Connection’

A lovely write up on The Design Files about the work behind my show ‘Affect’ 💌 showing Saint Cloche Gallery.

[…] Since moving from her home country to Australia in her mid-20s, she’s become intimately familiar with how relationships can transcend time and borders, and wanted to ‘capture the essence of that’ in her paintings.

‘Physical distance doesn’t mean that we don’t have our people with us. Sometimes we bond stronger,’ she adds. ‘Over time I have started to feel more assimilated [to Australia] and also more separated. I think much of my work has been a reflection on that interplay and conflict of identity.’
[…] ‘While painting I reminisce about a friendship or an event,’ she adds. ‘Sometimes a painting is more about a certain feeling, while the people I have in mind will often change. It has been so joyful and ‘loveful’ to create this body of work.’

‘Affect’ Solo Exhibition at Saint Cloche

So excited to share the most wonderful news with you! My first solo show AFFECT with @saint_cloche is happening in just a week (March 1st).

The last couple of years I have found myself reflecting on; ‘What is home?’ Our cultural and physical spaces constantly changing through life, yet some people will always be ‘home’ to us. There are the friends that journey with us, and the ones that we carry in our hearts.
I’ve been pondering the beauty of that human connection transcending time and borders. I wanted to capture the essence of that wonder in my paintings. And so AFFECT came about, a love letter to the people that shape us. 💌

Opening Wednesday March 1 2023
