Clare’s work captures the subjective experience of being through relationships of colour and shape. She traces thoughts, memories and emotions to create abstract landscapes. Embracing an everyday encounter with a blank sheet of paper, she allows compositions to emerge from spontaneous action. Breaking the sheet apart, painting each piece, and putting it back together, like a puzzle.
She focuses on the boundaries between interlocking shapes, directing emphasis on the way the pieces meet and touch. With ripped edges and intricate fixings barely visible beneath the surface. She has undertaken an MA at the City & Guilds of London Art School and artist residencies in Antarctica and the Chilean Fjords. She works in climate change and energy policy, currently undertaking a project to promote a sustainable future through art.
