Claire Falconer is an Irish artist working predominantly in oils to create contemplative, ethereal paintings. Her works seem at once ancient and modern, an alchemy of colour, blended, layered and subtly glazed, reflecting a sense of mystery and sensuality.
She considers oil painting to be an inherently enigmatic craft and invites the viewer to experience an affinity with nature that transcends everyday experience.
‘All things are correlated in ways beyond our wildest imaginings. We are each part of one another and part of the cosmos. Time is circular rather than linear. Our separation, our alienation from each other, is illusion.’
Claire’s talent in the visual arts is further enhanced as an award winning film producer and actress. Her studios have been visited by national and international documentaries and this year she participated in/ featured in the sky portrait artist 2017 series.
Currently nestled in the wilds of Donegal she is working on bringing nature’s beauty, power and fragility to the fore in her new collection.
