Clean Heart: A Landscape Retrospective by Clare Woods - 16th July 2016
Clean Heart: A Landscape Retrospective presents work from internationally acclaimed artist Clare Woods.
The exhibition brings together key works from the artist’s career alongside new pieces made in response to Hestercombe, its gardens and landscapes.
Clare Woods’ highly colouristic paintings, full of visceral energy, explore both abstraction and representation, expressing a poetic romanticism and an unnerving psychic charge. The exhibition charts her artistic journey from the raw influence of landscape to the wider human concerns of fragility, pain and vulnerability and their relationship to the natural world.
The newly published book ‘Strange Meetings’, the first monograph on Clare Woods’ art (foreword by Andrew Marr), will also be available during the exhibition.
