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.
Her works have been described as "glitchy and organic", using organic material and building supplies to reveal some of London's living conditions. Textures and shapes communicate concerns around social mobility and highlight the aggressive spread of gentrification within London, calling 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. Charlie 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.
