Clementine Neild’s work draws on her own experiences of grief, loss, and life with her lurcher in Cornwall.
She is deeply influenced by Japanese contemporary print and textiles. Often starting out with pen, ink and wash, Clementine works using many different types of marks to produce thoughtful images full of movement and energy. Her technique of layering using different media produces deep rich images. Working mainly with traditional printmaking techniques such as etching and monotype; Clementine explores personal experiences and creates an ongoing narrative through her use of recurring symbols and patterns.
Her work draws on the landscapes around her in Cornwall and her research and fascination with Japanese contemporary print.
She works between her basement studio in Penryn and John Howard's Print Studio in Penryn.
