Best of Beachscapes: Claire McCall

THE INCREDIBLE BEACHSCAPE ARTISTS YOU NEED TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION.

Melbourne-based artist Claire McCall is a born-again modern impressionist. “It has been said that you don’t find art, it finds you. Well art found me, just a little later than most,” says the artist. Claire paints almost exclusively using a palette knife, freely capturing light, movement and the interplay between abstraction and realism with layers of rich colour and texture. Her work often features everyday moments, with the viewer invited to fill in the blanks of time, place, thoughts and emotions. “Essentially, I would like to convey a relatable image to my audience that will evoke an emotional response. The greatest compliment someone can pay me is to genuinely stop in their tracks.”
