Hu­man move­ment and the sen­su­ous un­du­la­tions of fab­ric are used to sign­post the psy­cho­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal ‘push-pull’ flex­i­bil­ity of women, both in the past and as part of con­tem­po­rary life in the new paint­ings of Clare Thack­way. Here, the artist draws on the sup­ple­ness of oil paint to re-work the fe­male fig­ure to com­mu­ni­cate both its beauty and grace and the bal­anc­ing act of mother or carer as well as the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of be­ing a work­ing woman.
