Claire McCall

Abstract or impressionistic backgrounds applied with a palette knife
are combined with realistic subjects detailed in textured brushstrokes.

My work captures everyday moments in time.Typically, a figure turned away
from the viewer in a candid pose.

The viewer is invited to complete the story..to fill in the blanks about
time, place, thoughts and emotion.

I believe the intelligence of a painting is in the lost and found edges.
The interest lies within the range of values and textures, and the drama of abstraction vs realism
…and the magic is in the movement created by a confident stroke of the brush or palette knife.
