Catherine Clancy

Catherine Clancy is an English sculptor and painter, known for exploring the creation of beauty from the immaterial. “Art is held in the body. It is a conversation at depth, and every artwork is a ‘call’ to that depth.” In her sculptures, Catherine works with clay and plaster, scrim and cloth, binding all together, allowing the sculpture to dry to the point of breaking. She then repairs, rebuilds; often going through this circular process many times; an alchemy of decay, destruction and rebuilding. Her most recent work is concerned with the emergence of the image at the surface, strongly influenced by archaeology, alchemy, philosophy and poetry.
