CLAIRE DAWN STARMER
20 - 25 April ❘ 2pm - 6pm
Opening Night: 24 April ❘ 6pm - 9pm
I created the pieces in this exhibition purely for the pleasure of using mixed media to produce interesting marks, colours and shapes on the paper. I enjoyed playing with wire and producing shapes that would suggest an animal with as few lines as possible.
The resulting wire pieces were then used as the starting point for 2D inspired work. The pieces are loosely framed to emphasise the textural nature of the mixed media work.
My chosen pallet always leans towards warm, deep colours that are influenced by my time spent in the Mediterranean throughout my life.
I hope you enjoy looking at the finished pieces as much as I enjoyed creating them. And if you find a hidden meaning in any of them let me know as none were intended! Enjoy.
I also create 3D wire and complimentary 2D mixed media pieces for your space based on your choice of animal and colour.

These 3 pieces were created to reflect the interior, exterior and seasonal change at a fixed location. Photos were taken at the scene and mounted into a colour collage that formed the basis of the colour scheme for each piece. The brief was to create 3 pieces that had the feel of the place without necessarily any imagery.
Hand made paper with foliage was used to create additional texture and hints of bringing the outdoors in.
