About Claire Cansick
There are no upcoming events
Claire Cansick is a distinctive artist who represents her subject matter with style and atmosphere. Her paintings are often flat and stylised, but retain an obvious knowledge and a keen eye, honed in art school figure drawing classes at Gt Yarmouth School of Art. Figure drawing opened a love for technical challenge for Claire, one that she still explores over again; by pushing perspective in her figure work and by the infinite possibilities offered by landscape painting. After studying Fine Art Printmaking at NUA she began to paint and draw at home and so her painting skills are largely self taught through her own practice and experimentation.
Her artistic influences include Victor Passmore, Cy Twombly, David Hockney, Gary Hume, Tracy Emin, Ben Nicholson, Yves Klein, Andrew Pope, George Shaw, Mark Rothko, Egon Schiele, Edvard Munch, Botticelli, Alfred Wallis, Antony Gormley amongst others.
Claire’s work is separated into two disciplines; looking outward at the landscape, and inward towards the self.
Claire works from her studio in Norwich city centre, UK.
