Claire 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. ‘B is for Bear’ depicts a large brown bear, stood against a tall tree trunk. The background is made up of soft green stitching to create a dense, textured forest. The square print is framed by a black and white triangular stitch pattern with the words ‘B is for Bear’, in black sans serif font, skimming the bottom of the image. The tapestry effect, transformed into print, is striking, and the combination of playful naivety and artistic technique produce a truly beautiful aesthetic.
