With a focus on place and environment, through marking time, Caroline Wisler’s practice serves as a recording of flora, found objects, and other materials in their most organic state. The historical photographic technique Cyanotype allows her to capture the transience of plant and found materials through direct imagery transfer. This process harnesses natures’ natural energy, the sun, to capture the marks, shadows, silhouettes, and outlines of found flora and other objects. Her practice is informed and inspired according to the landscape she is working within and the materials found there.
Caroline’s work reflects upon our connection to place, how we exist within that space, and what forces are at play which bind us. She investigates what tie’s us to place by capturing a trace, and which emotions, memories, and perceptions hold us there.
Her work captures the raw, organic beauty of the subject in its most natural state, with the bold contours and receding shadows creating imagery that is full of movement, and depth. In 2017 she completed her Diploma in Visual Arts after many years developing her techniques, exhibiting, and experimenting. She has recently exhibited with the Tweed Regional Gallery and The Field ARI, as well as numerous group exhibitions. Her work is held in private collections worldwide.
