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.”, 2020
Through painting I convey my experience of the landscape. I aim to describe a space, what is it to move through, round and over a landscape, touching and being touched by the elements.
My painting is about trying to understand this vast thing of which we are a part. My intention is not to depict the space visually but to uncover the feel of what it is to really experience my surroundings.
I work in acrylic and oil onto canvas or board to create layer upon layer, sometimes revealing the past to create the depth and feeling I am aiming for.
