Charmaine Pike approaches the rich tradition of Australian landscape with a unique language, both of gesture and of sentiment. As has always been the case with her work, the fundamentals of drawing are at its core, with an unerring understanding of tone and confidence of line permeating each painting. Her work has become distilled to a point where forms appear effortlessly carved out of space.
Charmaine has been selected as a finalist in The Paddington Art Prize, The Mosman Art Prize and The Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing. Her solo exhibition at Tamworth Regional Gallery was met with great acclaim. Charmaine has been a recipient of the Nock Art Foundation HK/China residency. She has also received The Enid Ng Artist Residency in Paris.
