Candace Charlton's focus of her paintings is the world of feeling, both in the portrait and the landscape. Charlton uses these genres as a means to investigate the versatility and the ever changing elements of humans and nature. The female form has usually, but not exclusively her attention, because it is a world that she says she can relate to the easiest. It brings an endless source of inspiration and therefore the ability to tell a story, personal as well as universal. A certain degree of realism, placed alongside the abstract, is visible in her art.
