Carolyn Wigston graduated from the Tasmanian School of Art in 2007 with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours). Wigston lives and works in Hobart and has an active art practice, exhibiting regularly and participates in local art projects and initiatives.
Wigston works primarily with geometric abstraction within architectural form questioning and playing with the use of specific site related installations in both gallery and public locations. Using simple aesthetic shapes she aims to create instability and intrusion into familiar and presumed spaces.
Wigston’s current series of work explores ways of creating a 3-D anamorphic work from a 2-D painting. The works are very playful as the simplistic forms appear to bend and morph as viewed. The artist has confined colour and form to ask how far abstraction can be pushed and still create a kinetic result.
