Reflecting on experiences growing up in London's social housing has led Charlie to produce works which seek to uncover narratives and events within the home, specifically amongst the working-class.
Experimenting between digital and the traditional medium of painting, her works have been described as "glitchy and organic" in assessing how the two mediums communicate and address contemporary issues together. Charlie uses organic material and building supplies to reveal some of London's living conditions, with textures and shapes communicating concerns of social mobility and the aggressive spread of gentrification within London. Works call into question the availability of opportunities and harmful processes which exist.
A combination of contemporary issues with raw materials creates an immediacy to Charlie's work, stripping artificial and organic structures of their material properties to assess impacts on communities. She converts organic shapes into indeterminate forms as proposed living spaces and an invitation into working-class homes, blurring the lines between stability and chaos, where domesticity meets claustrophobia.
