Caroline Meynell's work is an exploration of the infinite possibilities of paint: how it is moulded, sensed, manipulated through a variety of processes. She uses thin layers of paint for creating depths, transparency and a sense of space, and the starting point is invariably landscapes of personal significance. A constant theme in her work is the way density is transformed by light.

Although the paintings can be deceptively simple, it is in their simplicity that a sense of place, a sense of space and a sense of light are evoked.

Caroline exhibited at the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea in March 2007 and at the Dadbrook Gallery, near Oxford in June 2007.
