Born in Hull, Caroline Rothwell studied at the University of Arts London in the 1990's and is based between Sydney and London.

Rothwell uses a range of media and translates them into objects via a series of unconventional processes: molten metal is cast into fabric waste-moulds; PVC is cut into large paintings; nylon is sewn and inflated to create anthropomorphic monuments; car exhaust emission becomes paint. She creates a fictional world, imagined but seemingly logical - exploring the unintended consequences of human activity.
