Clare Knox

Secret Second Life: new work by Clare Knox has taken the idea of using normal, throwaway, materials and turning them into something precious - necklaces, earrings, brooches etc. These vibrantly coloured 'scribbles' in EVA have a graphic quality to them that is at once innocent and playful yet also has a slightly uncanny side as the necklaces respond to body heat and mould themselves to the wearers form.
Clare's large drawings have been created especially for the window spaces at The Hub. Again produced with extruded EVA these drawings act as contemporary lace curtains for the stairwell. Ranging from skulls and octopuses to caricatures these pieces have huge commercial potential for those who are looking for something unique to keep prying eyes at bay.
