Clare Woods

Monday 08 January 2018 – Saturday 10 March 2018

Paintings by British artist Clare Woods. Woods is best-known for large-scale landscapes painted in household gloss and enamel on aluminium. Recently, the artist has moved into figurative painting. This exhibition presents a new series of raw and powerful paintings, frequently vast in scale, which were inspired by found photographic imagery the artist collects. These images often depict people at their most vulnerable, including in situations of conflict and confinement. Reinterpreted in oil paint using long, curved brushstrokes and sensuous colour, Clare Woods has created paintings which contain an intrinsic tension between reality and abstraction, beauty and its troubling undercurrent of ever-present danger.
