Charlotte Keates invites us to step into her detailed, idyllic interiors and calming architectural scenes. Here, the viewer can choose to occupy the space themselves, from the inside looking out or from the outside looking in – like a scene in a movie. Charlotte’s work is inspired by travels around the world, and seeks to explore the ergonomics of a space and how humans act and react to architectural spaces –making you want to jump in, explore and relax.
This year I leapt into the unknown and decided to travel around the world. Six months away brought a few realisations (and some mini breakdowns!) about who I am - or rather, who I thought I was. A plane ticket can't remove emotional baggage or insecurities, but travel forces you to reflect and really see yourself. It forces you to grow through being courageously vulnerable.
