Charlotte Caron

November 15 2012
Some of my Photography students are really inspired by painting over photographs. Charlotte Caron produces these artworks which also make use of the qualities of paint by letting the painting run across the surface of the photograph.

This reminds me of the famous image by Wanda Wulz, - 'Me and Cat'

Charlotte Caron, graduating from Fine Arts with
honors just last year, already has an impressive body of work. Chunked
into four series—Landscapes, Portraits, Vanities, and Anatomy—the unique
treatment of the Portraits have particularly stood out. A beautifully
imaginative hybrid of humans and animals, “this series of paintings,
photographs, trying to respond to a form of duality—that assumes an
animal part—by the medium of painting in addition, runs, mask,
according to the artist statement. “To ultimately create an osmosis between the two mediums, so between the animal and the portrait.”
