About

Through installation, sculpture and printmaking Caulfield’s work considers the ways our environment is transformed by forces of urban and industrial growth. The visual images and environments he creates blur boundaries between the biological and the technological, the organic and the mechanical, and challenge viewers to consider the implications of this merging.

Central to his work is the role that society, community and the individual has in the moment of change. Focusing on broader themes of mutation, metamorphosis, and regeneration involving both the landscape and the individuals that inhabit it, he aims to raise challenging questions for viewers about the role they play.

Caulfield will transform the main gallery in Edinburgh Printmakers, covering the entirety of the wallspace with expansive woodcuts. This ambitious exhibition will move between abstraction and representation, fluctuating between microscopic and macroscopic readings, whilst engaging with our contemporary reality, in which advances in technology are rapidly changing our relationship to the natural world, biology, and our own bodies.
