Charlotte Edey is a British artist (b.1992, Manchester). Her work is primarily concerned with contemporary issues of selfhood. Her imagined realms are peppered with symbolist motifs that explore the politics of embodiment, weaving cultural signifiers and personal mythologies in a process of world-building. The language of drawing is translated through her textile practice. Mark-making and gesture are explored through extensive hand-embroidery and beading on tapestry, forging direct relationships between line and thread. She employs found objects and artist frames as narrative devices to blur the boundary between the real and the represented, forming portals to bodily otherworlds that reflect on the interior.  

Recently featured as one of the 2023 Artsy Artists On Our Radar’, her work has also been featured in Financial Times, Autre, Artnet, Creative Review, Elephant, British Vogue, Metal Magazine, It’s Nice That, Dazed, Elle, AnOther Magazine & more. Artist commisions include Apple, Miu Miu, The New Yorker and The New York Times.
