SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Caroline Rothwell- Comparative Anatomy

post-image
The Comparative Anatomy series, 2009, is nickel-plated Britannia metal, approx 65cm high. “Rothwell has developed a practice that is both sculptural and two-dimensional, often using unique self-devised fabrication methods. She creates a fictional world, a geographical non place that is imagined but a logical consequence of real world actions. She uses a scientific focus to meditate on the follies of humanity, so that, her work can be seen as a grand macro-analysis, a scrutiny of human activity and its effects. Despite the gravity of her interests, they are approached with humour, erudition, economy and stylistic diversity.”
