Claire Falconer is an Irish artist working predominantly in oils to create contemplative, ethereal paintings. Her work seems at once ancient and modern, an alchemy of colour, blended, layered and subtly glazed, reflecting a sense of mystery and sensuality.
Currently nestled in the wilds of Donegal she is working on bringing nature’s beauty and power to the fore in her new collection.
“My recent work reflects an awe and reverence for nature in balance. I am excited by an emerging expressive freedom both in the flow of drawing and dance of colour. Moving to live by the sea has allowed me to re-immerse deeply and hear ever more clearly the wild wisdom within.”
