BAD MAPS (GOOD BOX) |Photointaglio and drypoint | 30 x 24 cm
CLAIRE GLADSTONE’s practice is concerned with the fallibility of memory and the traces we leave. Working primarily with experimental printmaking, mapping, book works and the sewn, she often uses maps and vintage stationery as an integral support for her work. The photographic is alluded to as an evidential memory document and unreliable archive for storing the fictions we keep and share to make sense of ourselves in the world. With a strong socially engaged agenda, Claire now teaches printmaking as Studio Coordinator at Arts University Plymouth, from where she holds a Master's with distinction (fine art). She has a studio in Hatherleigh, West Devon and is one-third of the collective Room To Manoeuvre.
