Caroline Walls (b. 1984) is an Australian artist working across a number of media, including painting, drawing, soft sculpture, and print-making. Walls creates work with a skilled and fluid approach to aesthetics, focusing on the female form as her central subject. She graduated with a First-class Honours degree in Visual Communication and Design from Swinburne University (2006) and recently attended the Victorian College of the Arts where she completed a post-graduate certificate in Visual Arts.
Caroline lives and works in Melbourne, Australia after spending extensive time abroad living in both London and NYC. Walls worked as a designer and art director for fashion and luxury lifestyle brands for 10 years before moving into
art-making full-time. In May 2015 she presented her first solo exhibition, 'The Women' at Gallerysmith Project Space in North Melbourne and has exhibited in many group shows since then. She looks forward to exhibiting her second solo show in 2017.
"With a foundation in design my artistic practice is grounded in a strong sense of colour play, line and form. I am inspired by everyday human experiences and the fluidity and movement of the human body. These artworks explore the female body and the reduction of its form as a way of heightening its expressive power."
