The artworks of Caroline Fillion reveal fictional scenes set between two worlds, generating dissension, and opening political discourses. These otherworldly, timeless representations are intimately tied to undefined, unlocated spaces. The colors, structures, walls, and scattered objects spill out of the containment of these void-spaces. These abstract creations featuring a strong sense of composition suggest the materialization of an upheaval, a shattering of space and matter. The resulting post apocalyptic landscapes are left to our wildest imagined interpretations.
