Caroline’s work investigates culture’s discursive surface: materiality in terms of both its tangible fabric and philosophical contexts, and the psychoanalytical methods of perspective and empathy. Through her multidisciplinary work Caroline attempts to create allegorical narratives that encourage the viewer to question their knowledge and perception.
Her latest work uses the materiality of objects and surfaces, as a symbolic medium to examine how perceptions are influenced by outward appearance. Through dramatically re-staging these objects, she engages the viewer with the immediate surface. Caroline creates an allegorical narrative to encourage the viewer to question the possibility that there is more than one way of seeing. She says that, there are more than our preconceived judgements and by finding out further information, negative perceptions could be transformed and empathy and understanding more easily achieved.
Caroline is a multidisciplinary artist working and living in South Derbyshire. Although she excelled in Art as a child, she was discouraged from following it as a career. She continued to study as a mature student, completing first her A level and then Foundation degree at Lichfield college. After receiving a first class degree in Fine Art from the University of Derby she continued to study and graduated with a Masters Degree in Fine Art from The University of Birmingham in 2017. Caroline has exhibited in the U.K. and internationally.
