Caitlin Smail

About Caitlin

The themes of my artistic work centre largely on memories and dreams. I work in a variety of mixed media from painting and collage to photography. Recently I have exploring the ancient art of encaustic wax to add luminosity and depth to my images.

I also practice as an Art Psychotherapist working with adults and young people at my studio based in North London.


My Work

In my artwork I use found imagery, objects and text, along with a combination of other media to explore the themes of memory, innocence and loss... often creating unexpected assemblages, which invite viewers to ​create ​their own narratives.

Since 2001, I have organised, curated and participated in a number of group exhibitions, as well as having six solo shows (2002, 2003, 2006, 2008, 2015 and 2016) with work ranging from painting and photography to installation.
