Caroline Achaintre


Netzer, 2012, Ceramic, 30 x 19 cm.


Efes, 2012, ceramic


Camouflage Nose, 2007, textile.

Born in France in 1969 and educated in Germany, Caroline Achaintre now resides in London where her work is currently on display at the Tate Britain. Her work evokes early modernism including German Expressionism and 'Primitivism' while also discussing the tension between painting, drawing and object asking such pertinent questions as can a sculpture speak of painting. The answer is yes if you know the language of painting. The works above are my selection, and are not entirely indicative of her work as many are coloured textile works.
