Honor Greenwood

(b 1997United Kingdom. Lives and works in Cape Town)

Positioned at the intersection of painting and sculpture, Greenwood’s practice involves large-scale installation as well as works on paper and canvas. She begins her process by studying the movement of a single brush stroke. She then mimics this movement using various techniques to emulate its shape and flow. So begins a cycle of reflection, adaptation and repetition, where each piece has a significant effect on the development of the next.

Greenwood’s characteristic layering of paint creates translucency, texture and depth, sometimes pushing the work into the realms of sculpture and installation. The components of industry – machinery, pipework and cylindrical design, have a strong formal influence on her work. This manifests as an index of marks, shapes and forms, recognisable across her practice.
