Caroline Hartley

Welsh artist Caroline Hartley paints in response to the current climate. Her work aims to confront the social and political norms brought about by coercion and consent.

This series serves as a reminders of the importance of connection.

Her linear figures depict linear thinking and a linear belief system imposed upon us since childhood. Juxtaposed to this we see the figures embrace life and one another.

Set in an atmospheric background, they become one with life.  - Chi!

In some of her images, Caroline includes a sun, but on closer inspection we find it to be a coin.

Things are not always as they seem and here we are asked to question the source of our sustenance..
