Overview

FREE ENTRY DURING NORMAL BUILDING OPENING HOURS

Claire Barnett is a British artist noted particularly for her deeply personal interpretations of landscapes and flora in and around her home in Dorset.

My paintings move beyond nature’s immediate appearance and evokes a state of mind: a sense of self in relation to place, its primordial history, and the wild, cyclical rhythms of the seasons and elements.

Works consist of layers of paint, glue, inks and other materials, such as honeycomb and lace. I experiment to create tactile, undulating surfaces, which are visceral responses in which I aim to express the vitality of artist and subject.
