Home from Home – Clare Thomas

“I am obsessed by notions of home, belonging and family history. My work crosses the boundaries between the outward-looking, predominantly masculine world of fine art, and the interior, feminine world of domestic crafts. I use stitch and embroidery, cut and paste, together with drawing and painting to create a body of figurative drawings, collages, paintings and textiles whose narrative is both deeply autobiographical and universal.”

Clare shared work made during her residency exploring the nature of home, and hosted a dinner and talk on Friday 26th April 2019.
