After the Rain Comes the Sun is an original abstract painting by Claire Chandler. I am constantly inspired by the natural world around me, even the most simple moments such as this. Through a layering colour upon colour, I am trying to achieve transparency yet depth until I sense the feeling of warm light shining through the cloud like formations.
Claire Chandler was born in Hereford yet spent much of her childhood living abroad. This developed into a love of travel and experiencing new places. Claire graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from The University of Northumbria in 1997 with the Terry Stephenson Prize. She has since been runner up for the Celeste Art Prize, has had regular exhibitions in and around London. She currently lives and works in Carshalton, Surrey. “My work is a direct response to my surroundings, visual memories of places I have lived, travelled to or explored. Colour, shape and form evoke responses in both the artist and the spectator – often these responses are indefinable. Through a layering of colour and a richness of surface I invite the viewer to wander and explore, creating their own personal journey.
