Caroline Attan is a visual artist who also flexes her love for the written word in each of her works. She combines poetry with paper collages to visualize her literary prowess in an unusual and stimulating manner. In a way, Caroline Attan's work can be likened to modern mandalas for they each take on a mosaic circular pattern and shape.

Focusing on the poetry of Pablo Neruda, Caroline Attan reinterprets them in order "to express the conflicting and contradictory emotions of desire, humour, anger, frustration and affection that his work inspires," as written by Bicha Gallery. She states, "Tantalizing snatches of memories and desire revolve endlessly over collaged backgrounds, encouraging the viewer along multiple strands of thought. The technique allows for ingenuity and flexibility. Some compositions disrupt or loudly announce their text or subtexts, while others absorb them into a calm coherent whole."
