Caroline AreskogJones' developing ecology of practice has a fundamental grounding in drawing as a means of exploring and questioning ideas and perspectives. It is research led, rhizomatic and possesses a vital human interaction of being within our non-human world.
Each series weaves together multiple threads of reference exploring altered states of impermanence and mutability, adapting to negotiate what she describes as a 'perforated space', suspended in flux, a place of ambiguity hard to categorise.
Like geological strata the resulting work is packed with references beneath the surface, evolving through time being added to, erased or altered in some way until the emergence feels complete. Adapting to its situated environment it can take many forms which reach beyond careful observation and thought to process, print in varying formats and moving image.
After gaining a BA(1st class)Hons Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and MA (Print) from The Royal College of Art in 2019, opportunities to grow a practice continue, including exhibitions, residencies, artist talks and writing.
Caroline has a background in both contemporary dance and physical therapy, and this intimate knowledge of the interconnectedness between body and mind are equally important to her practice. Based in London an inherent Scandinavian sensibility and connection to the land remains fundamental to enquiry and care.
