Caroline Collom’s abstract paintings carve out immersive spaces to inhabit. There is an architectural quality to Collom’s intersecting colour field planes which 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.
