Artist profile

Caroline Lowe Fine Artist

Caroline is a multidisciplinary artist born in the West Midlands and now living and working in South Derbyshire. Her portfolio includes painting, installation and digital works. Caroline’s current body of expressive abstract paintings are an autobiographical display of her desire to explore paint. Her works use shifting spaces that bounce between freedom and control. She is intrigued by how we perceive and emotional visual sensations. Caroline is excited by process, using not only brushes but many varied tools and mark making implements, powerful colours, texture and chiaroscuro to create atmosphere and emotion. 

While paint is the main focus, she also creates installations that use the materiality of objects and surfaces, as a symbolic medium to examine how perceptions are influenced by outward appearance. Through dramatically re-staging these objects, she engages the viewer with the immediate surface. Caroline creates an allegorical narrative to encourage the viewer to question the possibility that there is more than one way of seeing.

Caroline received a first class Degree in Fine Art from the University of Derby. She also received the Vice Chancellors Award and her work is in the University collection. Following her success she was awarded the Gertrude Aston Bowater Scholarship Award towards her Masters in Fine Art at the University of Birmingham, which she completed in 2017. Caroline has exhibited in the UK and internationally.
