Clare Thackway

Clare Thackway uses drawing, painting and video to explore contemporary portraiture and narrative figurations. She has in the past used the intricacies of drawing to mimic delicate lacework, the pliability of paint to uncannily rework the body, and theatrical layering to create dense set pieces. Her recent work explore gesture and non-verbal communication employing shaped Alucobond surfaces. Thackway has had recent solo shows at Canberra Contemporary Art Space and the Wellington Street Gallery, Sydney.
