Artist Monograph with essays by Rebecca Geldard and Andreas Vogel
Based in Zürich, Switzerland, Clare Goodwin grew up in Birmingham in the UK, studied painting at Winchester School of Art from 1993-96 and the Royal College of Art London in 1996-98. Invited by ECAV Sierre as an Artist in Residency and supported by the British Council in Bern, she moved to Switzerland in 2001 where she continues to live and work. Goodwins primary studio practice is painting. In her broader artistic practice and for exhibitions she engages with other media, from works on paper, spatial installations/large wall paintings to painted object furniture and - most recently - ceramics. The suggestion of abstract portraiture and the human spirit is a recurring topic in all her work, drawn directly from personal experiences and combining narrative possibilities with visual poetry.
