Clare Singleton has been working as a British Columbia artist for over 30 years. Clare has two strands to her work: in one area she paints on location in small town Canada, selling the paintings, creating stories, and doing commissions. She paints the joys and trials of small town Canadian life, a life she wants to document before she fears it disappears. Fishing salmon on the West Coast of BC, a tractor trailing hay across the Saskatchewan prairie… Through her art these mundane activities become sacred.
Also through her life journey series she expresses her own experiences.
Clare’s primary painting medium is acrylic on canvas, from 8×12 inches to 3×4 feet. Standard commission size tends to be 18×22 for approximately $395. She will work from photos but on-location is preferred.
In her other installation work she puts her concepts together to create 3-dimensional sewn pieces from her paintings, further expanding the idea of story. She also explores suspended and mounted screenprinted imagery within the gallery space. Research is also now more evident in her use of quotations mounted throughout the exhibition “Parallels of Movement”. This body of work has been in the making for 5 years and has recently been exhibited at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre and at the Xchanges Gallery in Victoria. This is an evolving exhibition looking at the parallels of human and bird migration.
