In Melbourne, An Emerging Painter and the Art of the Abstract Nude

Those unfamiliar with the work of Melbourne artist Caroline Walls will find clues to its themes in the titles of a few noteworthy collections: She & Her, Women, Intimacy, Abstract Nudes. Walls’s art (which encompasses paintings, prints, drawings, photography, soft sculpture, and more) is both spare and completely all-consuming, depicting the female form in ways that emphasize its grace and dynamism. We’re far from the only ones mesmerized by her swooping lines and rigorous use of color — and luckily for Walls’s admirers Down Under, there will soon be a chance to see it in person. The artist, who previously worked in graphic design and art direction, made her solo debut at Melbourne’s Gallerysmith Project Space in the spring of 2015; her second-ever show, Maybe She, will open at Saint Cloche in Sydney on November 8th, and run through the 19th. Check out select works from Walls below.
