Claire Bennett

Tulip IClaire uses a range of print techniques in her work and she is, perhaps, most interested in exploring colour through processes such as monoprinting, collagraphs and screenprinting.

 

“My work is informed by natural forms as well as the landscapes and architecture of my surroundings; ultimately, however, my practice is guided by experimentation and the unpredictability of the printmaking process itself.”

 

Claire has a science degree and a first-class honours in Fine Art and is interested in the parallels between the two disciplines: “I am currently collaborating with a Cambridge scientist and producing work in response to her research. My work will combine botanical drawings of the plant that the scientist is working on with molecular modelling diagrams of the plant. I was struck by the beauty of these molecular ribbon diagrams and how, in themselves, they looked like flower heads.” The work will be shown during a talk to be given by the scientist and in the ‘Creative Reactions’ exhibition to be held in Cambridge in 2015.

 

Claire combines her own art practice alongside her work as a Lecturer in Printmaking at a local college.
