Charlott Weise (1991 Görlitz, Germany) practice orbits personal experience, observation and literature, reflecting her concern with the author Clarice Lispector. The result is a body of work that involves an intensive use of metaphor to create an intimate mood. Weise’s paintings are notable for the emotion of the inner experience and for a variety that ranges from the psychological to the metaphysical.
Weise’s works provoke in the viewer an acute awareness of something staged.
The artist obtained her degree in Fine Arts cum laude at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. She has been the subject of individual and collective exhibitions in that city and has been nominated for the Dutch Royal Award for Modern Painting. Between 2014 and 2016 the artist received study grants from the Mondriaan Fonds and has been a participant at De Ateliers.
