Clare Money: Artist Statement

My work has always been about places, not remote locations alien to me but known
spaces that I revisit often.
Over the past thirty years I have worked in a variety of forms and have produced
drawings, paintings as well as more conceptual pieces that investigate and question
ideas of place.
I will walk, photograph and sketch multiple times in order to understand the nature of
the locations that my work seeks to connect with. Drawing in situ provides an intense
experience of the surroundings.By sitting still and absorbing all that is there, allowing
the place to come to you rather than seeking out any aspect with a particular
agenda, the artist makes particular and profound connections.
The work exhibited here is inspired by Holywell Dene, a woodland area close to my
