Charlotte E. Johnson is a contemporary photographic artist and educator, living and working in Auckland as a professional photographer, videographer and microscopist. Charlotte's artwork is often described as painterly and ethereal. Her art has gained a national audience within Aotearoa New Zealand as part of several exhibitions, books and magazines, as well as international publications. Her work is held in the New Zealand Maritime Museum and the McGregor Museum, and in private collections. FATHOM (2023) will be Charlotte's debut printed solo exhibition and will take place at Lake House Arts Centre, Takapuna, Auckland (27 May - 8 July), as part of the 2023 Auckland Festival of Photography program. FATHOM refers to both the measurement of water depth, and the verb describing the act of deep thought. The exhibition employs imagery of the ocean, seascapes, and contemporary portraiture to explore key themes of impermanence, connection to place, and mental health, encouraging the viewer to interpret the works and find their own connections. In addition to limited edition photographic prints, FATHOM utilises multiple mediums linked through visual elements, processes and themes, including fabric works, video, unique mixed media paintings, and hand-embellished AI composites.

About Sheree Foster:
I am a "life" taught creative person who has been involved with many forms of Art for most of my life. My art pieces are one-off and unique. They're created from a range of repurposed materials as a means of acknowledging the environment through art.
I am inspired by the materials I gather from Mother Nature and combine them with textiles, metals, flax, weaving and cordage, harmonising with texture and form, defining their finished body, often showing a Pacific Rim style or contemporary finish.
Each piece has a story and often I feel that personal story as the pieces are completed. My Limited Edition Fine Art prints come from first growing, then pressing, and finally arranging into botanical themed art.
Printed on archivable ragged rolled papers will be an everlasting testament to their beauty. Many of my pieces currently feature in galleries in Auckland after winning multiple First Place awards, or have been selected to exhibit from NZ Wide entries.
