Much of the Clare Menck´s work can be described as extremely personal - even autobiographical. She has the ability to transform a random subject, such as an ordinary cottage on a dusty corner, or a simple still-life on an old table, into a nostalgic and spellbinding scene. Clare's current solo "Paintings of Objects" concentrates on still-lifes and interiors. The objects she chooses have a characteristic quirkiness about them and speak of a world of personal associations, which in a strange way turns them into a kind of self-portraiture. Clare invites the viewer to explore her inner world in terms of the 'fetishes' she fondles with her paintbrush.
