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. ‘F is for Flamingo’ is a triumph of colour and composition. Three hot-pink flamingos stand to the side of the print, their long necks staggered at different heights. Halifax has created a beautiful blue background from a stitched graphic design of curved foliage, which chimes harmoniously with the pink of the birds. The square print is framed by a triangular black and white stitch pattern with the words ‘F is for Flamingo’, in black sans serif font, skimming the bottom of the image. The translation of textile into print is striking, and Halifax’s talent for compositional technique and stunning tonality shines through, creating a truly beautiful aesthetic.
