Clare Wardman’s practice is an enquiry in painting and drawing which considers the notion of fragment as a generative phenomenon. The resulting abstract image is a material interplay between loci and her experiential studio practice. She is interested in the series as an open ended or unfinished form to express time and unfolding processes.
Clare Wardman gained a B.A. Hons. Degree in Fine Art Painting and Drawing from Exeter College of Art and Design, Devon in 1982. She has been engaged in Art Practice since and is currently based with her husband, Scottish Painter, Iain Robertson (b. 1955), in the same historic complex of studios – Porthmeor Studios in St Ives, Cornwall where the artist Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004) worked 1945-63.
