Caroline Achaintre uses textiles, painting, drawing and ceramics in her work. She is influenced by the twentieth century art movements Primitivism and Expressionism which were both inspired by non-Western and prehistoric imagery. 'Fazes' is made by hand tufting wool. Hand tufting involves punching wool through a fabric sheet to create rugs or carpets. Fazes resembles an animal skin hanging on a wall, like a prize from a hunting trip. This reminds us of the resources the earth provides when it's properly cared for. The bold colours and pattern give the work a domestic feel – it could be a rug in someone's home.
