Clare Smith

Clare Smith's work is concerned with failed attempts to structure or make perfect. Through a playful and sensitive exploration of materials, she enables strucutres and forms to develop.  Recent work comprises contemplative pieces involving repeated marks and makes use of ready-made grids or constructed quasi-grids. Her work embodies process and emphasises the importance of making. Her choice of materials is informed by her mixed Chinese/English cultural heritage.

Love and War

Love and War by Clare Smith

The poem is by my sister, Jenny Sofied, and the book brings us both together.
