CLARE WOODS AT THE HEPWORTH WAKEFIELD GALLERY
This new exhibition by Clare Woods will explore her interest in the power and history of rock formations in the British landscape, and its various manifestations in the works of artists such as Hepworth, Moore, Sutherland, Piper and Nash. Her large-scale paintings (approximately 10 metres in length) use layers of enamel paint on aluminium. The paintings are often visually ambiguous and claustrophobic in their detail, combining abstraction and controlled figuration, held together by webs of paint and luscious reflective surfaces.
Exhibition runs from 22nd October - 29th January at the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery (www.hepworthwakefield.org)
