'Doublethink' is a term coined by George Orwell in his famous dystopian novel, 1984. It basically means the ability to believe two contradictory things at once or to believe outright lies despite also knowing facts that prove them to be untrue. Clare Woods uses Orwell's terms as the inspiration for a series of new paintings shown across two floors of Simon Lee Gallery. The artist's earlier work as a sculptor inform her richly coloured and rounded style of painting along with her continued interest in the human body.
