Podcast with Charlotte Herzig
In the context of the exhibition «Staging the Ordinary» a new podcast with Charlotte Herzig has been released. In the conversation, the Brussels-based artist talks about her approach to painting, the specialty of lithography, and the role of color in her work.
Listen to the podcast on Soundcloud, Spotify or Apple Podcast.
For her edition, Charlotte Herzig has explored the aspect of the serial unique work, with watercolor, stamp printing and the canvas as a grid and background in her painting. In the center of each lithograph, she has inserted a small-format watercolor with luminous curvatures that make each sheet unique. This element functions as an anchor point in the dreamlike landscapes.
The choreography and spontaneity that emerge in Charlotte Herzig's works are also central to the process of creating her large-format paintings. Without a preliminary sketch, the artist sets to work on the canvas and lets herself be guided by her intuition and physical sensations in a kind of improvisation. The artist often conceives murals that incorporate the architecture and enter into dialogue with works on canvas or paper.
In this view of the exhibition «I like a bigger garden» at the Museum of Art Lucerne, you can guess how Charlotte Herzig explores forms, color and background in her painting. Feel free to visit us at Edition VFO and see how this dialogue was transferred to lithography by Charlotte Herzig. Listen to the conversation with the artist on Soundcloud, Spotify or Apple Podcast.
