Charlotte Verity’s paintings come about slowly during many hours of intense looking and close observation. She is preoccupied by the changing nature of the visual world, natural light and the passing seasons. This volume, the first monograph on the artist, accompanied the 2016 exhibition Charlotte Verity: New Paintings at Purdy Hicks in London. In addition to 37 images the book offers great insight into a five-year body of work. “In these paintings,” Edmund de Waal writes, “the seasons ebb is marked. They are a calendar, a series of poems tracing one full moment and then another.” Included along with de Waal’s incisive response to the paintings is an in-depth conversation between Verity and artist Garry Fabian Miller as well as a text by Paul Hills (author of Light in Early Italian Painting)—who is especially perceptive about the importance of light in Verity’s work.
