Before pursuing a full-time career as an artist, Melbourne-based Caroline Walls worked as a graphic designer and art director. These roles can be seen to have influenced her painting, sculpture and print works, which are characterized by bold, feminine forms that display a confident exploration of composition and colour. Particularly in the ‘She & Her’ print collection, Walls presents abstracted female nudes, which she consistently returns to as her primary inspiration, some of which more clearly represent their subject matter than others. The borderline that Walls establishes between the figurative and the abstract offers a focus on the female body that is purely formal and celebrates all appearances for their own inherent individualities.
