Clair Bremner's artwork is inspired by nature and she likes to focus on bringing the outside in. Clair's paintings are highly decorative, however she feels they also serve as a reflection of the beauty and complexity that nature provides. Clair likes to capture the essence of a landscape, stylizing it and making it her own. Clair employs colour, pattern and repetition to portray the layers of foliage and vegetation that can be seen within the landscape.
Her colour palate is governed by her mood and the general feeling she wants to create within each painting. Clair generally works with analogous colours combinations because she feels they best reflect the natural harmony of nature, the subtle warm or cool changes of the seasons and foliage provide endless inspiration. However, Clair is not afraid of colour and she often experiments with combinations that are not usually traditionally associated with nature and landscapes.
Clair works spontaneously and rarely begins with a set plan in mind. She lets each painting evolve intuitively as she builds each layer of paint. She works quickly to begin with, which is why she prefers to work with faster drying acrylic paints. Each piece is then finished off with a layer of gloss varnish to enhance the colours and depth and also protect the surface of the painting. Painting for Clair is second nature, she has been doing it in one way or another since her early teen years and feels as natural as breathing.
