CAROLINE WALLS: THE WOMEN
Caroline Walls: The Women - Art Collector
| Caroline Walls, Female VI, 2015. Fabric soft sculpture on board, 30 x 40cm. Courtesy: the artist and Gallerysmith Project Space|
|Through the use of both contemporary and classical modes of representation, artist Caroline Walls explores both the physical reality and physiological value of the female body. Walls endeavors to critique contemporary ideas of women’s sexual and social identity in the current cultural sphere. |
The construction and complexity of the female identity, and the distinction between the private and the public self, are key themes of the work she produces. Notions of gender, intimacy and sexual fluidity are explored, often treading a line between the palatable and the perverse.
Walls hopes to find information and beauty in places other than those we are accustomed to looking. Ultimately her body of work hopes to create a dialogue around a different kind of physicality, offering a response to the process of what we see and what we don’t see in others and the self.
