Artist: Clare Woods

Monster Field, 2008, enamel and oil on aluminium, 274×732 cm

Clare Woods' (born 1972) paintings are derived from her photographs of undergrowth and vegetation, which are taken at night, often in desolate, contested or overlooked locations such as areas of scrub or deep woodland. Painstakingly transcribed using layers of enamel paint on aluminium, the resulting images are often ambiguous and disturbing, claustrophobic in their detail, and psychologically-charged.
Clare Woods was born in 1972 and graduated from Goldsmith's College in 1999. She has exhibited in the UK, Europe and America and was shortlisted for the Beck's Futures prize in 2001. She is represented in the UK by Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London.
Recent exhibitions include The Dark Monarch: Magic and Modernity in British Art, Tate St. Ives, Cornwall; Monuments with a horizon line II , Buchmann Galerie, Berlin; Watercolours, Buchmann Box, Berlin; Cemetery Bends, Pilar Parra & Romero, Madrid.
