About Caroline Banks

About the artwork

For artist Caroline Banks the unpainted areas of her canvas are just as important as the painted; what matters is the balance. The gesso then indigo acrylic ink were painted in one stroke across both panels of this diptych with the sharp edge of ink from a fully-loaded brush running over the gesso, changing as it carries its journey from right to left. This is one of her rare paintings using moon gold leaf, the pale gold celebrates the splashes on the left panel and is only used in the heart of the ink stroke on the right panel.
br> 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, as if they are surviving fragments from an unknown past.
br> 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. Caroline's aim is to create contemplative yet celebratory pieces, giving the viewer time for quiet reflection in today’s busy word of sensory overload.
