Stefana McClure (b. 1959 Lisburn, Northern Ireland) lives and works in New York. McClure completed her BA in Sculpture at Hornsey College of Art in London (1980-1984) and continued her studies in papermaking, with a Monbusho Scholarship, at Kyoto Seika University in Japan (1993-1995). In 1998, McClure was a visiting artist at the Awagami Paper Mill, Awayamakawa, Tokushima, Japan, and she has since been resident at the Field Institute Hombroich in Neuss, Germany (2008, 2010, 2011). McClure is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Distillation of time and obliteration and reconstruction of information characterize her drawings and sculptures. Her work has a self-structuring methodology: visual form being determined by the process by which the work is made. Recent solo exhibitions have been held at Bartha Contemporary, London (2013, 2009); Dublin Contemporary 2011, Dublin, Ireland (2011), and Josée Bienvenu Gallery, New York (2008, 2011). McClure has been included in numerous museum exhibitions, most recently at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2013 - 2014, Columbus Museum, Columbus, Georgia, 2014, Das Kleine Museum, Weissenstadt, Germany, 2013 and Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany, 2010. Public collections include Museum of Modern Art, New York, Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT, Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University Art Museums, Cambridge, MA, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, IN, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany and Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany. McClure is represented by Bartha Contemporary, London and by Josée Bienvenu Gallery, New York.
