Says Caroline of her work: “Recently I have been making sculptures from old steel found in scrap yards. This cast-off industrial material is completely different to cardboard and the resulting steel sculptures have a different non- organic quality. The rusty, broken, bent pieces prompt the start of the abstract forms and each sculpture seems to take on a life of its own. A new form, a sculpture with no purpose, opening and closing space, carrying its past life, the steel living on. The heavy and dense nature of the material gives a sense of gravitas and permanence to the sculpture.
Each piece is an individual, and has not grown from any narrative about person or place. The idea is intuitive, the material alone starting the process and igniting my imagination.”
