Caroline Rothwell

Caroline Rothwell’s practice engages with the politics of place, migration, conflict and mortality through the lens of the environment. Her work often draws on the anatomy of endangered or extinct species, though she is equally known for creating mutant and hybrid forms that explore the impacts of biotechnology and environmental contamination. What may at first appear playful or innocent in Rothwell’s work – shiny surfaces, toy-like contours, the allure of a flower or animal – are typically decoys for more ominous or unsettling subjects.Art Gallery of New South Wales
