Charlotte Mayer: In Essence

by Tom Flynn

'Charlotte Mayer – In Essence’ tells the moving story of Mayer’s life and career from her idyllic childhood in Czechoslovakia, her move to England as a refugee, student days in London, the tragedies of her family history and the challenges of her first public commissions, through to the success and recognition she enjoys today.

Tom Flynn’s scholarly text traces the influences, inspirations and personal experiences which have shaped her work from the Royal College to the present. Now in her eighties, Mayer is as passionate as ever about her craft and continues to produce sculptures of great eloquence, grace and subtlety which have the depth and power to reach us all.
