Caroline Collom’s large abstract works form a 1:1 ratio of scale with the viewer and carve out immersive spaces to inhabit. There is an architectural quality to Collom’s intersecting colour field planes which seem to conjure up imagined ever-shifting rooms, just out of reach. Gauzy and translucent planes block our entry; yet Collom creates perceptions of perspectival depth in her works, inviting viewers to constantly move in and out of the pictorial field – from a space amongst the shapes, to a contemplation of the whole.

Hidden forms emerge through this interplay – the white haze of Via Solferno II  opens out onto a receding skyline, and from the multi-point geometric forms of Hazy Moments a distant moon meets its counterpoint in a final, tiny hot pink circle on the surface.

British born artist Caroline Collom now lives and works in Sydney after a number of years in Melbourne.
