Claire 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.
‘D is For Dog Colour’ is dominated by a large, white, upper-case ‘D’, which stands against a repeated pattern of brown and orange dogs, a jumble of breeds mixed in together. Using only three colours, Halifax has created texture and tonality with a woven technique, layering sections of the print against one another for depth and detail. The tapestry effect transformed into print is striking, merged with the careful composition and rich palette, to create a truly beautiful aesthetic.
