‘Icons Near and Far Colour’ is a 5 colour Screen Print by contemporary artist Claire Halifax. From a limited edition of 100, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
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 aesthetic.
Halifax takes inspiration from her immediate surroundings, drawing on places of special significance in her own life to create busy, bustling cityscapes, filled with vibrancy and character. ‘Icons Near and Far Colour’ depicts the London skyline, with some of the capital’s most iconic buildings stretching back as far as the eye can see. In the foreground, Tower Bridge crosses the Thames, while the Shard rises up towards the sky, and the London Eye can be seen on the horizon.
The rest of the city is painstakingly detailed in black ink, while a soft blue sky and river, as well as leafy green trees, add contrast against the monochrome. With its beautiful illustrative style, ‘Icons Near and Far Colour’ captures the cosmopolitan city in all it’s splendour.
