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. ‘Sennen Cove’ depicts the little cove, its fishing boats moored on the beach with a rough sea raging in the background. The print has the feel of an Edward Ardizzone drawing, only Halifax’s detail is more rigorous, her palette a little more subdued, for artistic effect. There is a real power in the image, a stillness in the lifeless boats, even as the tumultuous sea hovers nearby. Thoughtful, beautiful and unique, ’Sennen Cove’ is a triumph of contemporary print making.
