The chance encounter of a sunny afternoon and a long forgotten pack of sunprint paper introduced Caroline Roberts to cyanotypes. She was immediately drawn to the clear link between the object and the image - the ghostly reminder of its once presence and now absence. Chance and a spirit of inquiry continue to inform her work as she manipulates and disrupts the cyanotype process to record traces of landscape. Her work asks questions about the way that landscapes form and change, and the marks we leave across its surface.
Born in the United Kingdom, Roberts lives and works in Houston, Texas. She received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Houston in 2015. Often found hiking in state and national parks, Roberts’ interest in landscape and the natural world is heightened by managing fifteen acres of forest in rural Texas.
