Caroline Kampfraath MRSS
Caroline was educated in Amsterdam as well as in Pietrasanta (Italy), where she learned to sculpt marble and other kinds of stone. Gradually her work became freer and more layered and ultimately found its definite form in complex, conceptual pieces and installations. Her works can rarely be interpreted at a glance, even though her titles may give a hint to their underlying meaning.
In her visual language Caroline often uses symbols such as engorged veins, dead dogs or kidney-shaped dishes. These sometimes-enigmatic elements give her work a surreal atmosphere. In the execution of her ideas she uses materials as diverse as natural resin, clay, flax, artificial resin, wool, lead, plaster, glass, bronze and stone.
