Dalam karya- karyanya Twomey memberi perhatian pada bahan, praktik kria, dan konteks sejarah serta sosial.

Instalasi-instalasi Clare Twomey mengemban konteks sosial dan kesejarahan dengan menye- diakan tempat sebagai titik mula. Seringkali karya -karyanya hadir hanya pada kerangka kerja ini. Sejumlah instalasinya, sebagai bagian dari proses, menghilang atau habis di tengah jalannya pameran. Seringkali pola perilaku pengamat juga secara konseptual disertakan sebagai bagian dari karya Twomey. Clare Twomey juga aktif terlibat dalam penelitian-penelitian di area seni terapan, termasuk dalam menulis, mengkuratori, dan juga mencipta. Ia membuat karya-karya yang juga turut mempertimbangkan ulang dan memperluas wilayah peng- etahuan tentang karya-karya instalasi skala besar.

A number of her installations disappear or perish in the course of the exhibition period as part of the work. Often the onlooker’s mode of behaviour is conceptually included in Twomey’s works.
