Umbra by Claire Beattie
Umbra by claire beattie
"I want to create rich and vibrant surfaces in my paintings that when balanced with minimal composition instil a sense of contemplation, reflection and calm. Building the painting plane with layers and layers of mark making, colour and tone, the paintings resonate together and on their own and go some way to echo the beautiful and meditative spaces I encounter and that have inspired them."
Claire Beattie, January 2018
Umbra is a new collection of paintings celebrating the timeless motif of the tree in the landscape, a constant source of inspiration. The canvases depict places seen, shadows cast, shapes created and an array of light and colours remembered.
