Caroline Thomson is an artist and MA Fine Art graduate of Chelsea College of Art (2003) and BA Fine Art graduate of Kingston University (1998). She is a current participant on the Turps Banana Off-Site Painting Programme (2019/2022). Her work has been selected for numerous exhibitions including, Lynn Painter Stainers Painting Prize Exhibition (2018, 2019) and ING Discerning Eye Exhibition (2019) among others. Her work is held in a number of private collections both nationally and internationally.
She creates paintings of figures immersed within a landscape. They are often absorbed within their own world. Thomson draws on the rich artistic and literary history of woodland and forests which act as a metaphor for retreat, transformation or the unknown to create psychologically charged paintings.
