Yavuz Gallery Singapore presents Caroline Rothwell in CorpusHer first solo exhibition with the Gallery, Corpus presents a new suite of paintings and sculptural works.

Rothwell is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice spans over 20 years. The daughter of an industrial chemist, Rothwell’s practice investigates how ideas and beliefs have shaped our contemporary world. Her work explores systems of human interaction relating to time, nature, history, and science.

This latest body of work continues Rothwell’s enquiry into how the portrayal of nature reflects society over time. She draws on archival and natural history imagery alongside referencing current infrastructure from our contemporary urban spaces to create a complex, embodied look at our relationship with the natural world. For Corpus in particular, the artist has researched imagery and information from the archive relating to Singapore, such as the Natural History Drawings commissioned by William Farquhar in the 19th Century and held in the National Museum of Singapore.

Through the creation of her hybrid plants and forms, Rothwell asks us to consider humanity’s current position in the world, and its relationship to non-human beings, structures, and systems.
