Claire Duncan combines a professional designer’s understanding of visual vocabulary with an artist’s passion for the painting process. Painting in acrylic on hand-crafted Baltic birch, her work owes a great debt to her previous design career. Her paintings carry an abstract edge to their representation.
Claire has always loved birds for their presence, their power and their grace. Her bird paintings often create a sense of empathy and emotion in the viewer, a sense of participation in the world of the creature.
She has a secondary body of work that includes landscapes that explore the intersection between humankind and the land.
Informed by a love of the natural world coupled with the more formal concerns of design and color her work evokes the solitary experience of beauty.
