Hearing Caroline Achaintres talk today was truly inspiring. It really came through how much pride she has in her work which was lovely to hear. The pieces themselves draw on inspiration from Primitivism. Each individual piece is unique and seems to evoke its own character, especially when they human like features. One question asked by the audience was why such a large scale? Achaintre simply answered they would not work or have the same effect, they are meant to be imposing on the audience, in a way having some kind of hierarchy.
