Lives and works United Kingdom.
Caitlin Yardley explores ideas of perception and interconnection. Through installations that variously assemble sculpture, painting, video, photography and collage, she investigates the way objects and images are framed by cultural narratives. Yardley’s practice forms an interwoven dialogue, connecting modernist legacies through the translation of ideas across media and time. Institutional and personal narratives intersect.
Drawing on archival research, biography and material abstraction Yardley traces and enacts specific moments and objects, constructing a lens that draws into view the peripheral or negative spaces that surround them.
