Carolyn Joanne Whittaker

Sculpture and Installation Artist, London, UK


There is an inherent fascination in my work with the unstoppable nature of time’s ability to change things. The viewer can often experience this ephemeral process and associated risks, in the reformation of wax, ice, jelly or ice cream forms as they burn or melt. The unpredictable metamorphosis of these works create a contrasting tension with my cast and carved immutable bronze and stone forms.
My 2019 series is exploring the subject of migration, refugees and closing borders.
