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 quickly using many different types of mark making to produce thoughtful images full of movement and energy. 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 in and around Japanese contemporary print.
She works between her basement studio in Penryn and John Howard's Print Studio in Penryn.
