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 graphic landscapes filled with vibrancy and character. ‘Penzance Harbour 1’ depicts the busy harbour, with all of its little fishing boats, stone clad walls and seaside houses. Sea and sky merge into one another with their graphic blue design, separated only by the horizon line of Penzance and a scattering of white clouds. The perspective is near impossible, a panoramic that couldn’t quite be captured by the eye, but that is where the beauty lies: though detailed and accurate, Halifax’s work refuses rigidity and strict realism, favouring an artistic fluidity, which allows her unique style to shine.
