Thea Clancy

Thea Clancy makes paintings that deal with emotional responses to personal memories. This attachment to memories derives from her interest in the human psyche. How the connections that we make in our everyday life can have an ever- lasting effect, or more concisely, how do fleeting, or simple, interactions have the ability to stay in our memories forever.

This session has seen Clancy focus more specifically on the power that our imagination can play in pressing times and the unfortunate nature of hindsight. Clancy’s paintings utilise abstract surrealist undertones that focus on distorted figures, who find themselves marooned in decorative, ambiguous spaces. Her heavy marks and playful colour palettes bring a slightly sinister yet melancholy narrative to the work.
