About the artist:
Claire uses old and out-of-date maps and atlases as my fabric to create intricate, delicate and detailed sculptures and collages that have been described as ‘exquisitely ethereal’ by the Financial Times..
Nature is ever present, even in the most urban environments, taking over wherever we neglect, living in a separate yet parallel universe. Claire Takes inspiration from the natural environment, creating entomological installations of flora and fauna from imagined locations. Her birds, insects and flowers transcend borders and pass freely between countries with scant regard for rules of immigration or the effects of biodiversity.
Claire's sculptures are either pinned directly onto the wall as a large scale installation or captured in box frames. The shadows created when light is shined on them creates a dynamic three-dimensional quality and creates a feeling of movement.
