About

Charlotte Squire is a visual artist based in London and the SW. She is a director at Fluxmetal and is at present developing an independent artist space in Plymouth.
Working independently and collaboratively to create and curate projects and exhibitions, her work is informed by materiality and differences of class and culture.

Using a process of collecting, selecting & reusing mundane objects and materials that have been put to one side or discarded, Squire is particularly interested in the poetry of the ordinary object & its syntax. It is possible to transform the ordinary into something wonderful that belies and transcends its origin. This is a mix-up process of assemblage – the constructed objects becoming, by their inherent pre-use, their own self portrait. Grouping them gives a sense of social placement and internal history that is both self contained and reflexive yet open ended as a social encounter
