Clare takes direction from the material of paint for this collection. Focusing on the movement, texture and mixed hues of paint to create distinctive silk scarf designs. Bold sweeping strokes fill the surface and contrast with sharper, dash-like marks. Colour moves between cobalt blue, muted mauve and seasonal burnt sienna. Clare experiments with abstract composition; layering, collaging and re-positioning painted paper, bringing oil, ink and water based pigments together. Clare photographs each artwork and works digitally to create distinctive scarf designs.
All artwork is printed onto lightweight 100% silk crepe de chine, square in size, 125cm x 125cm. Scarves are photographed by Capture Factory, model is Willow Boswell-Wright and hair and make up by Alicia Sandeman.
