Charlotte Dawson (b.1997) is a multidisciplinary artist working predominantly in sculpture. Having Graduated from Norwich University of the arts in 2018 Charlotte has gone on to complete a graduate residency and exhibit her work in multiple national venues. Charlotte Is currently part of the Into the Wild 2020 Cohort with a creative practice that utilises the communicative nature of objects.

Charlotte's practice is inspired by and references objects that we interact with in our daily lives. These can range from personal heirlooms, household appliances to objects found in the public realm. A key part of Charlotte's practice is the creation of multiples, often producing a series of sculptures or singular pieces with reoccurring themes and components. The use of the multiple signifies both an act of collecting and the re occurrence of objects within space. This is particularly prominent in her pieces inspired by street furniture. Her work often focuses on objects or details that remain largely overlooked and that evade attention whilst existing within our day to day.
