Following a trip to China in 2018, Hermione Carline has created a series of landscapes inspired by the limestone mountains rising out of the Li and Yulong rivers in the south west of the country. These pictures are transformed as a series of overlapping snapshots of reflections or mountain landscapes. Although dreamlike, the shapes of the mountains are derived accurately from drawings made at the time.
In Moonlight Sky Hermione is looking at this world as a perfectly still reflection. The luminosity of the light she has created acts as a memory of seeing an incredible light projection onto the mountains by Zhang Yimou (designer of the Beijing Olympics light show).
Hermione paints directly in multilayers of oil onto a birch plywood box panel. The sides are 3.8mm deep and are painted in a colour gradient, so the picture can be hung framed on unframed. As seen from different angles, the painting takes on a sculptural form.
Based in: London
Hermione Carline is a London-based English multimedia artist and oil painter inspired by abstraction, architecture and the natural world. Hermione's paintings are strong yet delicate and are imbued with an intriguing sense of ambiguity.
Hermione was born into a family of artists, many of whom are represented in public collections across the UK including Tate Britain. She studied Fine Art at Camberwell School of Art followed by an MA in Textile Design at the Royal College of Art. Hermione co-founded an international textile company, The Collection, where she sold her designs to leading fashion houses including Pierre Cardin, Christian Dior and Ralph Lauren. After working and travelling for 15 years with The Collection, Hermione returned to painting in 2004; though her love of fabric, intricate paper cut stencils and design shines on through her work.
As a visiting lecturer at colleges including Brighton College of Art, Hermione was inspired to establish Art-Atelier in 1993, a teaching business that encourages adults and young people to nurture their creativity. Hermione’s classes are full to this day thanks to her original and individual style of teaching.
Hermione has won awards for her innovation and skill. Recent collaborations have included projects with the Mayo Clinic, Claridge’s Hotel and Visto Images. She has exhibited with Gallery Elena Shchukina in Mayfair, The Other Art Fair and the Affordable Art Fair with Mint Art Gallery. Her work can be found in private collections in the UK and overseas.
