Charlie makes works based upon the feel of the coastal landscape – of the south coast, where he lives, and of the north Norfolk coast, which he visits often. He walks his dog on the beach as frequently as he can and his paintings are born of the experience of these walks. These are not landscape paintings, as such. Neither are they entirely abstract, but what Charlie likes to call ‘abstract landscapes’. He is particularly inspired by the St Ives painters of the mid-twentieth century Peter Lanyon and Roger Hilton, as well as Nicolas de Stael and Richard Diebenkorn. He tries to capture the essence of a particular walk on a particular day, how it felt to be in that landscape at that time.
He runs an artist-led exhibition space, Studio One Gallery, with his wife and fellow painter, Tori Day.
Day’s work appears in public collections, including the University of the Arts and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and in private collections in Portugal, Spain, Italy, China, US and UK.
