Charlie Cunnington-Shone


My practice centres around identity and the body. Drawing on my own queer experiences, I aim to create solidarity and community for those who share these experiences and compassion and empathy from those who don’t. Everyone can recognise part of their own story in my work, and from that, a dialogue can begin.
