‘Creating artworks is a healing process for me. Allowing me to try to deal with the myriad of injustices that we come face to face with each day. As a person I struggle with injustice in any form and my artwork has become a therapeutic tool for me to work through these issues.

 

My sculptures take a critical view of social, political, and cultural issues engaging with them in an almost sarcastic, satirical, and humorous way. I use fairy tales, fantasy, wordplay, nursery rhymes, illustration and icons to deconstruct and comment on issues of injustice in its different forms.
 

Whilst I have and continue to work across different mediums, I am passionate about bronze, and love the permanence and durability of it. I am keenly aware of the durability of time and enjoy the idea that my artworks and their message will remain well into the future for the benefit of others’

Biography

Carol Cauldwell (b.1968, Johannesburg, South Africa) has steadily developed a global reputation as a highly sought-after sculptor, with her works featuring in numerous important public and private collections across the world.

Her whimsical sculptures take a critical view of social, political and cultural issues conveyed in a sarcastic and humorous way. 

Inspired by her father’s love for art, Carol joined the Johannesburg school of Art, Ballet, Drama and Music, first specialising in music and later specialising in art. She went on to complete a Diploma in Ceramics, where she excelled in sculpture. This led to her establishing a Pottery Studio that soon expanded into a factory which was hand-painting over 4,000 ceramic items per day for various stores. The tremendous discipline required to manage such a factory gave Carol the skills required to become an excellent artist, with exceptional focus and work ethic. 

In 2011, Carol took the decision to fulfil a lifelong dream to sculpt in wax and bronze casting, and this has remained her core focus ever since.

 

Carol enjoys pushing the boundaries of her own limits, which has led to her recent decision to open her own bronze foundry.  

Her work could be described as "magic realism" and appeals to the nostalgic yearning in all of us for a more innocent world in which dreams come true
