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 aesthetic. Halifax takes inspiration from her immediate surroundings, drawing on places of special significance from her own life to create busy, bustling cityscapes, filled with vibrancy and character. ‘Eye Eye London’ depicts the London eye, standing beside County Hall at the banks of the River Thames. The image is dominated by sky and water, which Halifax has rendered in graphic patterns - a striated design for the sky and a repeated wave for the river. The print is compositionally powerful, with the two different patterns intersected by details from the iconic skyline, and the muted colour palette (sepia tones and soft blue) lends a thoughtful, quiet mood: a truly iconic image for the London lover.
