Caroline Walls is a Melbourne-based artist working across a number of media, including painting, drawing, soft sculpture and print-making. She is a visual artist whom creates work with a skilled and fluid approach to aesthetics,with her creative practice crossing continents to New York and London where she worked as an art director and designer in creative agencies for luxury fashion and lifestyle brands.
Walls draws inspiration from the movement and fluidity of the female form, moments of intimacy, contemporary perceptions of women’s sexuality in the current cultural sphere, as well as notions of gender and fertility. She is keenly interested in the construction and complexity of the female identity, and the distinction between the private and the public self, which are key themes of the work she produces.
Her artistic practice is grounded in a sensitive use of colour and a deep understanding of composition and form. Caroline reductive paintings are stripped back to the most essential line and shape to heighten the expressive power
of each artwork. There is obvious intention behind the lithe colour scheme of
her paintings, which resonate with fleshy, natural milk and oak tones of the skin.
We are honoured to include her line work of She & Her Muse in our Dazed family.
