Following her residency to Shanghai in November 2012, Claire has been developing work using the arrows that she photographed there. Using the camerless technique of producing a photogram, Claire has produced a series of works which see the arrows move across the page, leaving traces of where they have been behind them.
One of these works, ‘Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? (Down)’ is on show at the Halton Open, at The Brindley Arts Centre, Runcorn from 13 April 2013, and has been awarded a Highly Commended prize.
The works are made using photosensitive paper in a darkroom, placing cut-out outlines of the Shanghai arrows onto the paper surface, exposing them to light, then moving the cut outs to a new position, exposing them to light, moving them again, and so on for a number of repetitions.
The works are for sale at a cost of £100 each (framed), contact the artist on firstname.lastname@example.org
