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. ‘R is for Rooster’ depicts a large, brightly coloured rooster in shades of coppery-red and turquoise, carefully rendered in a detailed, illustrative style against a soft-green, graphic background. The piece is bright and vivid, drawn with intricate pen strokes to create a gently textured effect. The square print is framed by a triangular stitch pattern with the words ’R is for Rooster’, in black sans serif font, skimming the bottom of the image. Halifax artfully treads the line between children’s book illustration and contemporary graphics, to create a truly stunning aesthetic.
