About Caroline Banks

About the artwork

Gesso acrylic ink, metal eyelets on natural linen canvas 40x40cm. Ready to hang. Tension between the purity of machine-made eyelet circles and the sweeping hand-painted circular gestures. Caroline uses the expressive and gestural quality of brush, gesso, and ink with gilding and piercing in her explorations into the fluid and fugitive nature of memory, bearing witness to the passage of time. Some pieces can appear almost archaeological, surviving fragments from an unknown past. The Zen circle is a key element in her visual vocabulary which she returns to repeatedly. Chance is an important element of the creative, meditative process with unpredictability playing its ever-present role as in life. She works with her materials on the knife-edge of control; once a mark has been made it cannot be taken back and the interplay between materials is itself a fascination. Her aim is to create contemplative yet celebratory pieces, giving the viewer time for quiet reflection in today’s busy and sensorially bombarded world.
