Clare SmithArtist, Project manager
Clare Smith’s practice involves pattern, chance and process, often using strategies such as cutting, tearing, gluing and stitching. A prevalent element of of her work is the grid – its rigid structures which regulate and provide order are fitted into, broken down or rebelled against. Smith works with drawing, print media, installation and painting to investigate the tensions between identities and traditions informed by her Chinese/English heritage. An autobiographical sense of instability, not quite fitting in and in-betweenness, due in part to the frequent travelling between homes in various countries and boarding school in England as a child, also informs her work.
