Carol Wyss

Carol Wyss born in Switzerland and lives and works between London and Liechtenstein. Studying art in London she graduated in  1996 with a MFA Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art (University College London). She has exhibited internationally with shows in England, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Austria, France and Germany.

Wyss’ work is a concerted search for the structure of things; she takes familiar structures apart and puts them together differently again. The human skeleton is the basic structure through which she examines the relationship of human structures to their surroundings. Through dismantling and opposing existing structures new formations are created. Abstraction is part of the process – not trying to hide the origins, rather broadening the possibilities for interpretation. What you see at first glance is not necessarily what it is.
