Clare Burnett is President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.

Her work, strongly material and process driven, is initially inspired by the dilemmas of 21st century living - technology, consumerism, transport and migration. Using wood, stainless steel, bronze, concrete, resin, plastic and clay, and always with a concern for colour and paring down, she sites works in groups or in locations that draw gentle attention to the issue in question. Clare has completed site-specific installations in spaces such as Corbusier’s Unite d’Habitation, Brompton and Norwood Cemeteries and Bishopsgate Square.  She has shown outdoor sculpture at Meadow Arts, Cheeseburn, Hannah Peschar and Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer.  Solo exhibitions include Leighton House Museum, William Benington Gallery and the University of Leeds and she has shown at the RA, the National Gallery, the Jerwood Space, the RIBA and the Royal Society of Sculptors. 

Clare is represented by William Benington Gallery.
