Clare Burnett is a British artist, raised in France and Belgium and working in London. She is President of the Royal Society of Sculptors.
Her work is a process-led response to the issues, objects and spaces around her. She scavenges from her surroundings; plays with, reconfigures and transforms her ‘finds’ in the studio; then arranges them to create interactions with each other and with the space beyond.
Clare studied Architecture and Social and Political Studies at Cambridge University and Fine Art at the Byam Shaw School of Art. Solo and group shows include Leighton House Museum; William Benington Gallery; the University of Leeds; Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer; the Royal Academy; the National Gallery; the Jerwood Space; the RIBA; and the Royal Society of Sculptors in the UK; Sanyi Wood Sculpture Museum in Taiwan and Brooke Benington and Studio Block M74 in Mexico. She has completed site-specific installations in spaces such as Le Corbusier’s Unite d’Habitation, France; Brompton and Norwood Cemeteries and Bishopsgate Square. London. This year her first public sculpture was installed in China.
