When I first came across Caroline Larsen’s work, I was unsure of what I was looking at – oil paintings or woven tapestries. Her work is defined by her choice of not using a thinner or filler to the oil to create these raised surfaces that seem quite complex yet so simple. They merge pixilated neo-impressionism with the idea of textile weaving. She does this by using a bag with a serrated tip to extract the paint that creates a beautiful textural surface, resulting into this illusion of being intricately hand sewn.
