Summary note
Clare Woods (b. 1972) is a British artist whose evocative oil on aluminium paintings range in scale from small, intimate pieces to vast, immersive works. Originally trained as a sculptor, Woods paints flat on a desk, her fluidly sculptural brushwork invoking a tangible sense of gravity. Her work is inherently paradoxical: it pleases the eye, yet a flaw or element of discomfort or vulnerability is ever-present. Her paintings are based on photographs she finds in books, newspapers or online. Her latest works portray cropped details from her daily surroundings. Her flowers in vases and views of dimmed rooms invoke the tedium of long hours spent indoors - an experience that has become familiar to everyone during the pandemic. Marking her Finnish debut, Clare Woods' solo exhibition at the Serlachius Museums provides an overview of her work from the past five years. The articles in this book were authored by Anouchka Grose, Laura Kuurne and Pauli Sivonen. Exhibition: Serlachius Museum Gösta, Mänttä, Finland (26.03.2022-05.03.2023)
