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 in her own life to create busy, bustling cityscapes, filled with vibrancy and character. ‘London!’ depicts the city skyline from an elevated position, taking in a wide vista: the Thames can be seen snaking through the centre and Halifax has included everything form Battersea Power Station to the Shard, the Gherkin and the London Eye. Halifax’s passion for the place is strong in her work, and she renders the city of London in beautiful detail: with a keen eye for architecture, Halifax recreates the busy streets of the city in a way which is both accurate and artistic. Her print is like an architect’s sketch, adorned with pops of colour here and there (green trees, blue river) for an enduringly appealing aesthetic.
