Claire Norton

Claire's art practice is informed by her background as a Sports Massage Therapist. Her focus is that of the physiology, form, and appearance of the human body, primarily the contrast between the surface and what lies beneath. 

Frequently she uses photographic imagery as a source from which to develop ideas.  She is interested in exploring the ambiguous nature of familiar forms and use relative scale, cropping and layering to abstract every day representations. 

In her recent work Claire is exploring the intangible quality produced when energetic, gestural marks and the mechanical rendering usually associated with print, collide. The material process of printmaking affords the means by which to continue this exploration.

Claire is a member of the 310 Collective.
