Statement about AOAP Submitted Artworks
Caroline Thomson creates paintings of figures, specifically children, immersed within a landscape. They are absorbed within their own world. Ideas around childhood, the nature of imagination and memory are entangled in these enchanted spaces, where the children are the protagonists of their own making. Thomson draws on the rich artistic and literary history of woodland and forests which act as a metaphor for retreat, transformation or the unknown to create psychologically charged paintings.
