Discrete Channel with Noise : Algorithmic Painting (Detail) Discrete Channel with Noise : Algorithmic Painting (Detail)

I am British artist, working with and against the photographic medium. Over the past two decades I have worked with found imagery, kinetic machinery, web programmes, fairground attractions and most recently, large scale paintings. I often reject the subject-based qualities and the immediate demand of information, so often associated with the photographic image and instead, and without apology, adopts and welcomes a subtle, slow burn approach.

I have widely exhibited in venues such as The Museum Folkwang; The Center Pompidou; Tate Britain; Salzburg Museum of Modern Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. My work is held in the collections of MOMA; SFMoma; The V&A; The Center Pompidou; The British Council; McEvoy Collection; The Arts Council; The NY Public Library; The Uni Credit Bank; The Mead Museum and Cornell University.

I have produced 3 publications, Clare Strand Monograph published by Stedil (2009), Skirts published by GOST (2014) and Girl Plays with Snake published by MACK (2017). I am represented by Parrotta Contemporary Art, Cologne/Bonn.

I'm also one half of the collaborative partnership MacDonaldStrand and Head of the Intangiable for The Institute of Unnecessary Research.
