Process and concept are united in Caroline Rothwell’s work which ranges across two and three-dimensions. Often using unique fabrication methods, Rothwell examine how ideologies have shaped our contemporary world. Metal is cast into fabric moulds; PVC is hand-cut into sculptural wall drawings; paintings are embroidered; pollution is used as a painting medium. Frequently examining specimens, curiosities and historical data to create uncanny worlds that are a collision of art, science and perception, Rothwell explores how the unintended consequences of our past collide with present technologies, politics and landscape.
