Carolyn Rothwell - Artist Profile, Issue 20

“Rothwell has developed a practice that is both sculptural and two-dimensional, often using unique self-devised fabrication methods to create strange hybrids… Rothwell creates a fictional world, a geographical non place, populated by strange hybrid plants, animals and people, imagined but logical consequence of real world actions.

Rothwell uses a scientific focus to meditate on the follies of humanity, so that, as a whole her work can be seen as a grand macro-analysis, a scrutiny of human activity and its effects. Despite the gravity of her interests, they are approached with humour, erudition, economy and stylistic diversty.”
