Paper continues to be a fascination for Clare Pentlow’s hand cutting and folding creating ever more intricate and textured artworks. She enjoys challenging the perception of paper as an ordinary material transforming it to be extraordinary constantly refining and looking for perfection whilst embracing the versatile qualities of strength and fragility.

Through precision hand cutting and folding, her pieces evolve over time through methodical repetitive motions building layer upon layer resulting in highly textured mesmerising pieces of art which draw the viewer in. The methodical approach Clare takes is rooted in her love of maths and science continually being inspired by patterns and colours in nature.
