Caro Williams MRSS
Caro's art practice makes use of a wide range of materials and processes to create installations, objects, and visual poems. Frequently referencing poetry and the natural world, as well as diverse cultural narratives, much of her work incorporates symbols, text, spoken words, and recorded sounds. Central to Caro's art is an ongoing fascination with the exploration of the relationship between language, sound, nuance and place.
