Blue Fragments

Claire Sparkes RI SGFA | Watercolour | 6 x 7 inches

“Blue Fragments’ collected from the garden form the subject for this painting. At the centre of the composition, the blue Agapanthus, or ‘Flower of Love’, offers strength and beauty from bud to seed. It is surrounded by the broken crockery fragments of lives lived, time past. These blue moments unearthed become treasure on my shelf, inspiring new journeys.

My paintings primarily focus on people, whilst also encompassing still life, interiors and landscape. At times my work crosses these boundaries interrelating and layering elements. This leads to the weaving of narratives that draw upon connections through time and place, as well as between cultures, individuals and mythologies.

Drawing is fundamental to my artistic practice. Techniques of drawing and painting merge within my work. I love the versatility and fluidity of watercolour, and enjoy combining looser washes with layered detail. Mark-making is extremely important to me. Like a calligraphy, it unravels the story of the painting over time.Claire Sparkes
