Lisa and Tin
Born and raised in NYC, all the while exploring a visual relationship to the city through her various cameras. Caroline's work has appeared in New York Magazine, “O” the Oprah Magazine, Details, INC, Playboy and others, as well as having been exhibited both nationally and internationally. She lives in Brooklyn with her activist husband and two lovely daughters.
Influenced by historical painting and inspired by the possibilities of digital technology, I looked to find a way in which I could re-envision contemporary portraiture. I wanted to speak to an audience through an already established visual language, but do so in a way that brought a contemporary perspective to my subjects who are women mostly in their 30’s. In referring to various historical paintings, either directly or inferred, I hope to illustrate that our rituals don’t necessarily change. Though the circumstances of our historical moment may differ dramatically, art often depicts that which makes us inherently human. Our emotions, needs, frustrations and desires often remain the same. What changes is how we, a contemporary audience, view and understand what we are looking at.
