Clare Humphries is an Australian artist who lives and works in London and teaches at the Royal College of Art. Her practice explores the notion of aura, often referencing experiences of loss, rituals of bereavement and perceptions of distance to propose a liminal space.

Clare’s work is represented in many public collections including the National Gallery of Australia,  and has received numerous awards and commissions including, most recently, Highly Commended at the 2019 Fremantle Print Award, winner at the Ursula Hoff Institute Award (at the 2017 Geelong Acquisitive Print Awards) and the 2017 John Denton Print Award.
