About the Artist
Flora and fauna thrive in neglected areas of the city: Claire Brewster uses out-of-date maps to create delicate paper-cuts of this urbanised natural world. In The Harbingers she creates a flock of sparrows from maps of the United Kingdom. Historically, sparrows are symbols of death, supposedly alerting the Romans to Jesus’ on-going suffering on the cross. They thrive alongside humans. Brewster’s work, like nature itself, is beautiful and menacing. In subject and method she reveals the vibrant potential of the overlooked.
