British artist Caroline Walker’s paintings and drawings depict women in scenes that possess a quiet, cinematic quality. Often in public spaces such as beauty parlors and hotels, the women go about their day in moments of solitude, performing tasks like getting their hair done, swimming in a pool, or making a hotel bed, seen in this work titled Guest Change. Her scenes often convey the sense that the protagonist’s activity does not match her mental state, as if she is lost in thought and her mind is somewhere else. Walker’s work has been included in solo and group exhibitions in the UK, Europe, and the US, and her work is in the collections of the National Museum Wales, Cardiff; UK Government Art Collection, London; Kistefos Museum, Jevnaker; and AKZO Nobel Art Foundation, Amsterdam.
