Charlie Barton, The Osborne Studio Gallery, Belgravia, until 8th November
The theme of this show is the Cosmos – ‘celestial objects, nebulae, interstellar dust.’
The artist says that ‘I’m interested in life force, at what point does life begin and cease in all living matter.’ One must admit she does it rather well.
The late, great Sir Patrick Moore, known to millions for his The Sky At Night television programmes, said of her work ‘I’ve been looking at the moon all my life, but always as a scientist. Charlie shows the moon in a new perspective, she makes the lure of the moon even more irresistible.’
He is not the only one to appreciate her work for it is also found in many collections, including those of members of the Royal Family.
