Caroline Thacke

Artists in Residence
01.10.2016 - 31.10.2016

Caroline is a visual artist who lives and works in Northhampton, England.  She works primarily with the photographic image, her technique centres around the layering of imagery pushing the photographic film towards saturation and creating an abundance of information and depth within the flat photographic frame. This causes the slowing down of the reading of the images, pulling the eye around the various spacial and textural elements creating the illusion of a strange world.

Her work is driven by a fascination with dreamworlds, the imagination and their link to the unconscious. The intention is to explore the potential of imagery to act as a trigger or a gateway into these realms.

During her residency at Despina, Caroline intends to explore the rich and colourful tapestry of Rio de Janeiro, creating a fantastical mapping of this stunning cityscape. Using both photographic film and collage as well as incorporating found materials, she wishes to produce a body of work celebrating the energy and vibrancy of this culturally rich and beautiful city.
