Clare approaches her art with the eye of a designer.

She is a skilled draftswoman, able to translate Australian landscapes into minimal pictorial elements. She uses flat or textured planes with reduced saturated colours to create balance and order in her works.

For this exhibition Clare has drawn on the bush from her local area and from Lake Tabourie, where her family holidays in the summer. In her paintings she captures these moments of peace and connection with nature. Clare is continuing her “Pathway” narrative, which reflects her view of life being a journey. She has embarked on a series of canopy paintings, magnifying the foliage of trees to create semi-abstract works strong in form and colour, defining the simplicity and calm that she finds in nature.

This showcase illustrates the elements that empower Clare’s art practice, nature, unique colour palettes and thoughtful order.
