About

Whitfield Fine Art is delighted to present an exhibition of new work by Claudia Carr.

Claudia Carr's work explores the territory between 'still life' and 'landscape', between the intimate and the epic. Carr paints from the landscape of debris and clutter, organic material and small plastic animals that accumulate in her studio. Because of specific lighting conditions, random juxtapositions of objects, and the process of long slow looking, the perception of scale is skewed and the spaces become ambiguous, evoking prehistoric/post apocalyptic wildernesses, wastelands, secret gardens and savannahs.
