This exhibition catalogue was published to accompany the exhibition CLARE WOODS The Great Unknown, held at Cristea Roberts Gallery in 2021. The publication contains an interview between Clare Woods and Helen Waters, a list of works, and a biography of the artist.
The Great Unknown explores the themes of fragility, transience and otherness, the delicate borders that exist between sickness and health, cruelty and humanity, and the cycle of life. Having initially trained as a sculptor, Woods’ understanding of sculptural forms underpin her pictorial work. New collages and prints depicting interiors, still life and portraiture encourage an understanding of what it means to live in a time of mass image consumption and in a world that treats banality and disaster in the same way.
