Clare Halifax is an artist who understands the beauty of print making. Using highly skilled processes, with an impressive talent for illustration, Halifax creates prints of rich and meticulous detail, with design, pattern and colour playing crucial roles in the overall style. Halifax has produced a series of a-z animal prints, using textiles to create a picture book aesthetic. With an impressive eye for colour and composition, the animal series merges art and design, incorporating typography, texture and graphics to stunning effect. ‘A is for Antelope’ shows three graceful antelopes, prancing across a green plane which has been woven into a geometric pattern. A row of silhouetted trees sits on the horizon line, backed by a white sky which is flecked with uniform black dots. The square print is framed by a black and white triangular stitch pattern with the words ‘A is for Antelope’, in black sans serif font, skimming the bottom of the image. The tapestry effect, transformed into print, is striking, merged with the careful composition and muted palette to create a truly beautiful aesthetic.
