Caroline H. Thon is a Danish visual artist based in Copenhagen. Her primary medium is oil painting, but she also works with installation and murals. She has done large scale murals in both Chile and Denmark. Her work has been exhibited in Valparaíso, La Unión, Shanghai, Berlin, Aalborg and Copenhagen.

Thons art is driven by a curiosity towards our affective responses to our surroundings. Her current work is centered around how we experience the relationship between our own inner psychobiological landscape and our perceived surroundings, especially in relation to disruptive events such as neurological trauma. Her earlier work investigated the aesthetics of the male body in a project called Manscapes. This project examined the male body as an object to the female gaze and deals with intimacy, male beauty, fragility and materiality.

Thon has a background in both biology and art history and has along her artistic practice worked within the science museum field, where she has worked with research, curation and production.
