Charlotte Beaudry’s figurative paintings often depict objects borrowed from popular culture, the everyday and the world of celebrity. From a gigantic cactus to Lady Diana’s tiara, her distinctive iconography is inspired by fragments of reality, as well as photographs she takes herself or sources from the Internet. Characteristic of her practice is the way she isolates her subjects and depicts them frontally, as to avoid situating them within any specific context. Filling the entire composition, these objects exist by themselves, suspended in a state of isolation and often blown up to such a scale that they no longer relate to reality. They become portraits in their own right, familiar and strange at the same time. The artist is also drawn to the world of teenagers and past memories from early adulthood.
