Caroline Rothwell

Through the creation of her hybrid animals and plants, with their skewed sense of scale and environment – a sort of “nature on acid” – her works interrogate the relationships between humans and the natural environment. Says Curator Clare Lewis, “Rothwell devises fantastical species and ambiguous narratives which mimic the naïve exuberance of Disney, with a toxic edge.”
