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 busy, bustling cityscapes, filled with vibrancy and character. ‘Power at Battersea’ takes Giles Gilbert Scott’s iconic riverside structure as its central image. The power station is proudly viewed from the south, with all of its chimneys visible and its industrial red brick highlighted beautifully against the graphic, grey pattern Halifax has used for the sky. Now, more than ever, there is such poignancy to the image, showing a sight which is fast becoming nostalgic, beautifully captured in Halifax’s unique style: a truly iconic image for the London lover.
