Caroline Achaintre @ Touchstones, Rochdale

7 July 2018 - 8 September 2018

Caroline Achaintre’s watercolours sit at the heart of her multi-disciplinary practice, which also traverses textiles, ceramics and prints. Renowned for working in vibrant colour and potent imagery, Achaintre’s work often evokes a subversive spirit of carnival, creating an atmosphere that is simultaneously playful and absurd.  This exhibition, Wimper, focuses on Achaintre’s watercolour and ink drawings and lino-cut prints.
While drawing on traditional European festivals, still a regular, seasonal occurrence in towns and villages throughout the continent, often typified by centuries-old customs and darkly fantastical costume, the artist simultaneously makes links to contemporary sub-cultural strands of sci-fi, the goth-metal scene, psychedelia and horror films.  A selection of her paintings are shown in Rochdale to celebrate a progressive, female artist in continued ascendancy.
