BIOGRAPHY

Born in the late 70's and raised in regional NSW, Carolyn is a largely self taught artist who anchors her practice in a place between the natural and the artificial.  As a maker who works through surface and form, what glides Carolyn's intent is the production of forms where the familiar becomes the undefined. 

Carolyn's handcrafted sculptures draw inspiration from the peculiar and the imagined.  These fictional pieces provide an intimate experience for the audience, serving as a portal into an alternate world where one can interact with strange beings, organic forms.  Which in turn, begins to address evident elements of momento mori, abstraction and the abject.  By using remnants such as wire, bone, leather, wood , thread and fabric to create her pieces, the interplay between the real and the artificial becomes a crucial aspect.  These creatures are neither animal, botanical nor human but instead occupy a state of the in-between.
