  • About the work
  • About the artist
    Born in Paisley, Claire Barclay is based in Glasgow. She studied at the Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1993. Since then, she has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, working across mixed media. Her work explores themes such as the role of craft in contemporary art; contrasts between natural elements and man-made items; and the commoditisation of art as espoused by various lifestyle ideologies. In 2003 Barclay represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale; and her first retrospective exhibition opened at The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh in 2009. She received a Paul Hamlyn Award from 2007-2009, and in 2010, exhibited 'Shadow Spans' at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London as a recipient of the Bloomberg Commission. Other solo exhibitions and commissions include: 'Tenuity' at Stephen Friedman Gallery, London (2021), 'Deep Spoils' at Mission Gallery, Swansea (2018); and 'Yield Point' at Tramway, Glasgow (2017).
