Caroline Cary. Artist’s Statement. I live and work between Granada, Spain and Vanguard Court. Camberwell,London having a Studio in both places.I work with all sorts of different media, including painting on Perspex bothsides, which has led to a collaboration with Jim Webb, a laser performer andalso into making sculptural constructions, combining paintings on Perspexwith sheets of oxidised steel.The panels of Perspex are painted on both sides which adds literal depth, verypainterly on one side, smooth and transparent on the other however what isalso interesting, is they present an entirely different aspect depending onhow they are lit. Put together in a sculptural construction, you get acombination of forms, colours, reflections and projections changing as thelighting affects them.My work has evolved out of years of painting landscapes and figures. It drawson a vast mental archive of images and the intense excitement engendered bysuch experience.continued
Although figuration is the starting point for my work, it is not theprimary concern. I am interested in space both literally and pictoriallyand the arrangement of forms therein. I like the tension between whatcan be read as figuration but is abstract and figuration that depends onAbstract values to work. My personal aim is to make paintings that resonate through their useof colour and their formal qualities, opening that space in the brainwhich leads to a heightened awareness of the visual world.It has been said that Art aspires to the condition of music. I aminterested in the primacy of sight and how equally music can bedescribed in terms of colour.Caroline Cary.
