Clare Woods: One of the most important British artists working today on her evolving practice and the tension that runs through works bursting with colour

Episode 8,   Mar 07, 07:00 PM

This episode of Making a Mark explores the work of Clare Woods (b. 1972), the connections between the artist's life and ever evolving practice, which has expanded from painting to prints and collage.

We meet Woods in her vast studio where she has recently installed a printing press. Woods discusses the physicality of her practice; the tension, trauma and conflict that runs through her work; and how she comes up with her intriguing artwork titles. 

Contributors include founder and gallery co-director, Alan Cristea; writer and former Frieze magazine editor, Jennifer Higgie, who has written about Woods; and Simon Wallis, Director of the Hepworth Wakefield, who first exhibited Woods' work in a solo show in 2011.

Presented by writer and critic, Charlotte Mullins.

This podcast episode coincides with the exhibition Clare Woods: Soft Knock at Cristea Roberts Gallery (8 March – 20 April 2024).
