WPG artist Clare WinslowArtist Statement

Screenprinting enables me to synthesize a variety of creative selves: printmaker, photographer, draftsman, digital artist, and painter.  It allows me to collage layers of imagery from drawings, photographs or scanned objects.  Although screenprinting has been known to generate flat, hard-edged images, through the use of new techniques, it can also produce prints with depth, texture, and painterly surfaces.

While I often rely on the computer to develop an initial composite sketch, I depend on my background in drawing and painting to make decisions about color, value, shape, texture, and line. Composition plays an important role in creating a sense of balance. Geometric shapes serve as navigational devices to lead the viewer’s eye through the picture. Varieties of scale, texture, transparency and value add depth, while a unified color palette helps to harmonize these elements. Ultimately, I try to maintain a balance between process and feeling.

My latest prints deal with the theme of navigation and exploration. I am interested in working with signs and symbols that represent our attempts to chart a course through life and the physical world.

Bio

A native of Washington, D.C., Clare was exposed to art early, as the child and grandchild of painters. She studied Fine Art and graphic design and narrowed her area of interest to screenprinting, a medium which allows her to combine a broad range of artistic interests and techniques. Clare’s prints have been included in group shows at the Washington Printmaker’s Gallery, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Shanghai International Convention Center. Clare has lived in Tokyo, Washington, and Los Angeles, and currently resides in Bethesda, Maryland.
