In/Visible
by Charlotte Wilson-Hammond
September — October 2020
During the last fifty years, Charlotte Wilson-Hammond has used her body as a way of accessing the strength, sensuality, vulnerability, beauty, and now the fragility of the female form, all part of the eternal cycle of birth, growth, regeneration, and death.
In 2015, Charlotte began a new series of conté drawings and shadow photograph/print/drawings, once again using herself as the subject. In this work, Wilson-Hammond reflects on the fragility, vulnerability and yet the beauty and strength of this timeless human condition, noting that one of the most mystifying aspects of aging is that one’s presence is diminished within the general public, often to the point of invisibility.
Three years in creation, the exhibition consists of large (36 x 59 inch) drawings using photographs of Charlotte's shadow in the landscape. After digital manipulation, the resulting images are printed on semi-transparent mylar at reduced saturation, then the entire surface is worked with coloured pencil. She thinks of Mylar as a skin, and connects its transparency to the quality of shadows.
The work connects a 50-year career of making art using the female body “as it relates to the landscape, and I view the land as a body as well, so they are connected in a very integral way,” says the artist.
