The Cut Out collection focuses on the process of traditional print making and irregular shape to create vibrant, abstract designs. Imagery is developed from Clare's artwork. Using the idea of the ‘cut out’ shape in a surface to reveal and hide layers within the artwork. In printmaking, stencils are cut out and layered over existing artwork, acting as a resist to the new ink layer. Complex and unexpected colour palettes emerge as the freedom to move between artworks means work is spontaneous and experimental. Clare photographs each artwork and works digitally to create distinctive and beautiful coloured 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 Ella Vallance and hair and make up by Alicia Sandeman.
