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. ‘L is for Leopard’ features a lazy leopard, draped across a thick tree branch, looking out towards the viewer. The creature - with his black and golden-yellow pelt - dominates the top section of the print, leaving an expanse of blue which Halifax has woven into a stitch-like pattern. The square print is framed by a triangular stitch design with the words ‘L is for Leopard’, in black sans serif font, skimming the bottom of the image. Halifax has used a blend of textile and illustrative techniques, merged with a strong compositional style, that works to impressive effect to create a beautiful and unique aesthetic.
