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. ‘Tower Bridge’ takes the Thames as its vantage point, looking up towards Tower Bridge. The image is framed by the two iconic towers with details from the London skyline just visible in the background: the dome of St Pauls and the BT Tower are amongst other, carefully rendered buildings on the river’s north bank. Halifax has used graphic designs to fill the sky and river: a geometric pattern for the sky and blue, spiralled waves for the Thames. The intersection of detailed illustration and bold graphics creates a powerful composition and a truly striking aesthetic.
