Caroline Walker’s new series of paintings, titled Home, offers the viewer a less familiar portrayal of the refugee crisis. In collaboration with Kettle’s Yard and the charity Women for Refugee Women, Walker met and photographed five women living in temporary accommodation, before making paintings of each in her studio.

The paintings in service present glimpses of women at work in the first or last light of the day, when the glowing lights of interior spaces animate the activity within. Taking a documentary approach, Caroline Walker made a series of walks around London, observing and photographing fellow Londoners, both she and they absorbed in their work. Restaurant kitchens, salons, shops, offices and workshops all feature in this series of paintings which reflect on those isolated fleeting moments that form fragments in the dislocated lives of a city.
