Clare Thackway: Between Us

Clare Thackway explores space between bodies with a series of figurative paintings in the exhibition ‘Between Us’. In the context of a global pandemic, Thackway’s use of colour and light, drapery and stripes, are symbolic contemplations used to evoke notions of intimacy and distance, freedom and confinement, anxiety. And although the identity of each subject is obscured from view and the figures are posed in a vulnerable state, we can feel a sense of empathy and understanding in the works.
