Clare Menck

Clare Menck has been painting passionately for more than twenty years, focusing on subject matter which at first glance appears to be the obvious and familiar yet on closer inspection and engagement with medium paint reveals a fresh and life affirming vision of the environments around us. Menck documents her own personal life which bears witness to the challenges and demands of balancing motherhood, family life and the desire to persue a career as a professional and independent artist. She focuses on what she is most familiar with: herself pondering, wondering, swimming; the persons she knows and loves, her children, close encounters and the environments she works in. Menck has refined her skills of observation, toiled with the images of other artists such Lucian Freud, Gwen John, Antonio Lopez Garcia, Gerard Ter Borg and Gustave Courbet, to name but a few, to develop an approach and vision the engages the eye, heart and mind of any viewer.
