Clare Woods: Soft Knock

London SW1Y 5JG


Cristea Roberts Gallery is delighted to present Soft Knock, a solo exhibition of new works on paper by Clare Woods (8 March – 20 April 2024). Woods utilises the genre of still life and the classical trope of memento mori to explore the vulnerability of life, its fragile boundaries and co-existing tensions. In a departure from earlier work exploring the human body, Woods’ new collages and prints, from cut flowers to empty stoneware jugs, are seen alongside works depicting loaded skies. Hovering between figuration and abstraction, the works in Soft Knock present us with both the familiar and the uncanny, the gentle and the sinister.
