Charlotte Mann è un artista britannica che crea disegni in scala 1:1 su parete, solo con un pennarello nero. Charlotte Mann dice del suo lavoro: “Sono affascinata dal paradosso di tentare di rappresentare un ambiente con la profondità, la grandezza naturale, ma in due dimensioni.”

The question of scale therefore is always based on the viewers physical proximity. The same is true of how perspective functions in my drawings. There can be no single, fixed point of view, so perspective is resolved for each object or grouping or area. Looking at the work, especially the long walls such as the Clarient commission, becomes a combination of seeing the wall as a whole and scaning across the surface.”
