Our Sculptors

Caroline Rothwell MRSS

Interested in an art/science dialogue, Caroline Rothwell's practice is multidisciplinary and investigates ecology, nature, poetic and political ideology through process and form.
Mixed media

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.
