Claire Murray | West Yorkshire
Claire Murray is an artist and designer living in rural Yorkshire. ‘Inhabit’ is a series of paintings on card, which explore the interrelationships between internal and external spaces. Ephemeral, thin layers of transparent watercolour paint float lightly over slight gesso textures, suggesting permanence and impermanence in equal measures. Structural lines, corners, edges and angles divert the viewer inside and outside the spaces created on the page, exploring ideas of enclosure, exposure and sanctuary. The work attempts to define space, inviting you to connect with that space, but instead plays with ideas of fragility and instability in the structures.
