Charlie Barton Wall Street International
"Sir Patrick Moore, presenter of The Sky At Night from 1957 until 2012, a programme which attracted millions of viewers, did more than anyone to educate the British public about astronomy and space travel. He wrote an eloquent tribute to Charlie Barton’s paintings: 'I’ve been looking at the moon all my life, but always as a scientist. Charlie shows the moon in a new perspective, she makes the lure of the moon even more irresistible.'
Chelsea Arts Club Chairman Rick Stroud, author of The Book of the Moon, praises her work in romantic prose: ‘Charlie Barton's powerful images of the moon are not what you will see through a telescope, hers is the moon that, if you are lucky, you will glimpse in the dark recesses of your imagination. Her moon is the moon of our ancestors, the moon that challenged them to define what, or who, it is. Barton's moon paintings put us in touch with a primeval lunar far side, the side we see in dreams. Now her work is taking her past the moon and into space, she is drawing inspiration from the wonders of the cosmos that lie hundreds of millions of light years away. I wish her luck on the voyage.'
High profile collectors who have bought Charlie Barton’s paintings: Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Michael of Kent, Dowager Viscountess Rothermere, James Sainsbury, the late Sir Patrick Moore.
Leading interior designers often commission her work for prestigious commercial spaces and grand private houses. Daniel Hopwood, creator of sumptuous interiors, writes: ‘Charlie creates wonderful large scale planet paintings which you can delve in to in a meditative way, and look great in people’s homes.’"
