Born in Hong Kong, Caro Williams is a London-based artist.

Caro's art practice makes use of a wide range of materials and processes to create installations, objects, and visual poems. Frequently referencing poetry and the natural world, as well as diverse cultural and historical narratives, much of her work incorporates text, spoken words, and field recordings. Central to Caro's art is an ongoing fascination with the exploration of the relationship between language, sound, nuance and space.

Caro graduated from AUT Auckland, where she received a postgraduate research scholarship and gained a MA (1st Class Hon’s). Caro exhibits widely in galleries and outside environments. She has has received a number of commissions and awards for her work, including the Wallace Trust Visual Arts Postgraduate Award, the 2013 Gen-i Selectors Award for her installation at Headland Sculpture on the Gulf, she has been a finalist in both the 2014 Wallace Arts Awards and Premio Celeste 2015, and a 2016 recipient of Creative New Zealand World War 1 Centenary (WW100) Co-commissioning Fund. Her work is held in public and private collections including the Wallace Arts Trust, New Zealand and Luciano Benetton Imago Mundi Collection, Italy. Caro is a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and is currently working on Cicatrix, an international artists collaborative project.
