Clare Woods


Each work in the selection box is a unique watercolour, painted over an existing black and white image.  Clare Woods says that she is “incessantly fascinated with transforming sculptures into two-dimensional, yet tactile, forms. This piece was inspired by a Georgian etching of carved stone penises; I really wanted to capture the solidity of the three dimensional form within the fluidity of the brushstrokes of the painting, reflecting the qualities of the original sculpture; simultaneously soft, smooth, curvaceous, yet firm and tactile.”
Woods is a painter who’s paintings feel very sculptural. They combine a fluidity and confidence of brushstroke and coherence, from seemingly disparate subject matters, from the bunion specialist, silent German bombs Euardo Paolozzi wax heads, First World War bandage manuals, a bird’s nest, dismembered statues.   Born in Southampton in 1972, she attended Bath College of Art 1991-94 & Goldsmith’s College, London 1997-99.  Recent solo exhibitions include, Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre. Dundee Contemporary Arts, Dundee and A Tree A Rock A Cloud, at the Oriel Davies, Wales.
