Clare Trenchard Talk

While creating and manipulating a maquette in front of the audience, Clare Trenchard will give a talk about her work, both sculpture and drawing as well as teaching. She will describe the inspiration, the techniques and the boldness that it takes to make really good work, whether two dimensional or three, no doubt with many laughs as well as serious discussion.

Clare Trenchard studied sculpture at Chelsea School of Art and now lives and works near Bridport in Dorset. Her sculptures are modelled mainly from life in clay, plaster or wax and cast in bronze or bronze resin. She makes large dynamic drawings and collages on canvas as well as smaller drawings and paintings on paper.
Clare’s large, bold drawings seem to have been made quickly in charcoal and wash. There is a sense of drama in the making of the drawing as well as in the subject matter where movement, tension and relaxation are all brilliantly evoked. Even the very still creature, watching and waiting, has a strong sense of potential movement.
Her animals, whether in sculpture or on paper, capture the essence and feel of their subject. Dogs, goats, ostriches, horses and wolves, all exude such character and purpose that one instinctively reacts as if they were real. With her Haremen however she takes a step further, tapping into a kind of mythic life force, powerful, sexy and jubilant. This show also includes her diary-like sketchbook drawings of people asleep on trains, people waiting in the oncology department. With this major exhibition, Clare is reaching her full confidence, daring to challenge and delight.
