As if to Nothing

A body of work created in response to an extended trip to the artic circle in Northern Norway, where Claire took trips with huskies deep into the country during winter.  The works reflect the desolate, monochromatic landscapes, yet are filled with subtle details and flashes of colour. They are mixed media works using a combination of acrylic paint, tissue paper, thread and stitch.

Quietness, reduction, stillness, silence. I want the viewer to be engaged yet feel rested when looking at the works.
