About Caroline Forward

 
 
  • Biography

    I am an oil painter living in Cambridgeshire where I draw inspiration from my surroundings whether that is people, landscape, city or general life around me here and on my travels.  I use brush and palette knife and work mainly on canvas.

    The geometry and architectural elements of landscape interest me, and the accompanying light and textures.  I often work from memories of intensity and surprise that store in my memory.

    I enjoy exploring edges of reality and abstraction in my landscapes.  By letting go of some of the detail or the specific, I am striving to create a more universal sense of the place and what it may evoke. 

    I have become increasingly interested in painting the human face, a never ending challenge of light, planes, contours, of capturing mood and character, and where possible exploring the interconnectedness of person and place.

    More recently I have been exploring architecture, taking unusual views of architecture, aiming to capture timelessness and monumentality of historic buildings.

    I exhibit regularly, including participating in and managing the recent successful OuseLife group Artist in Residency at Ely Cathedral and exhibition “The Secret Life of Ely Cathedral”, April 2016.

    Dates: Nov. 7, 2016 - Nov. 19, 2016

    Venue: Michaelhouse Centre, Trinity St, Cambridge CB21SU

    Exhibition with Peter Corr, Paul Janssens and Caroline Forward
    This exhibition showcases diverse perspectives on Cambridge, its architecture, history and its street life.
    Caroline Forward’s oil paintings explore the interplay of stained glass colour and light with stonework and architecture, capturing the stillness and monumentality of historic architecture.
    The result of this collaboration, the first time these 3 artists have exhibited together, is a rich, colourful, energetic and contemporary take on this historic city.

    Event: Riverside Arts as part of Cambridge Open Studios

    Dates: July 16, 2016 - July 24, 2016

    Venue: New from Old Workshop, Little Ouse, Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK

    Rick Forward, Caroline Forward, Rick Gordon, Tom Jones, Barbara McGirr and Jeremy Peake are exhibiting a new range of 2D and 3D art as part of Cambridge Open Studios. Furniture, paintings, collage and ceramics. The exhibition will be open 16/17th and 23/24th July from 11am to 6pm each day.

    Event: The Secret Life of Ely Cathedral

    Dates: April 6, 2016 - May 2, 2016

    Venue: Ely Cathedral, Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK

    Featuring major works by nineteen members of the OuseLife group of artists, this exhibition showcases over 100 specially created art works celebrating the Cathedral and the people who care for it.
    OuseLife has had unprecedented access to the people and buildings of the Cathedral. Through these connections artists have had the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes of Cathedral life, past and present. This exhibition includes a wide variety of styles and media, reflecting the diversity of the OuseLife artists. A new perspective on Cathedral life is revealed through Painting, Sculpture, Textiles, Photography, Prints, Film, Willow Work and Ceramics. Along with site specific artworks, this collaboration has inspired a wealth of portraits of people involved in the day to day life of the Cathedral.
