Caitlin Smith works predominantly in sculpture and installation, which explores aspects of movement and sound, to extract echoic memory.
She is intrigued by the functionality of the human body and visualizing this through creating an analogy of grotesqueness in her work. She contrasts this to social pressures and expectations forced on women, reflecting on the influences of the media, world events and everyday life, which conditions women in how they look at their own bodies.
Experimentation is an integral part of Smith’s practice. She works with various materials and found objects. The materials are chosen in deliberation towards colour, texture, shape and form and she explores these through the context of her practice and her own personal experiences with her body.
