Art Gives - Interview Series - Caroline Walls
What is your most treasured piece of art or design object?
When and how did it come into your possession?
I've had it now since 2012, I purchased it when her book was released and it sits framed in Tasmanian oak on my bedside table so I wake up to it every morning.
How does it make you feel when you admire at it, and why does it stir this emotion?
The image is of four naked women in a wild landscape in Sassafras - it's free, unrestrained and unselfconscious - and those are the feelings it evokes when I look at it.
What has this piece given you in terms of enrichment, enjoyment, and fulfillment?
The image, as with the entire photographic series from the book, is an exploration of femininity, sexuality and identity, themes that I like to explore in my own work, albeit in a different way. It's a gentle reminder everyday to keep creating and delving deeper.
