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. ‘Waves at Westminster’ depicts the Houses of Parliament, in sepia tones, standing at the edge of the Thames. The waves provide the only colour in the scene, in a curved repeated pattern of soft blue. A single boat sails down the river, dwarfed by the impressive Gothic palace and a few birds circle iconic Big Ben. There is a quiet and intense mood to the print, which captures the majesty of the architecture and the importance of its riverside setting: a truly iconic image for the London lover.
