Norfolk artist Claire Cansick is directly inspired by nature and colour.
Her landscapes explore the woods and rivers on her doorstep as well as documenting her poignant memories and travels to more exotic destinations. They are concerned with light and shade and she plays with recessive colour and compositional elements to create a sense of place, mood, interaction and experience. Claire starts with her own photos or sketches working quickly to begin with, before discarding the source material and letting the painting take over. She adds varying amounts of detail until the desired feeling of the work is reached. Her work does not concern itself with groups or series of paintings but one offs, with only an ever evolving colour palette bridging between them.
Claire is a member of The Arborealists and ArtCan and exhibits all around the UK and Europe both in group and solo shows.
