Claire Sandars Paintings
Born in 1972, I live in London and have a studio in Earlsfield. After studying art for 5 years I worked in film and then as an art consultant. It was whilst living in South Africa that I was inspired to go back to painting. I now also teach once a week at an art school in Hampstead.
Diploma in Foundation Studies at Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Higher Education (1990 - 1991). BA Hons in Fine Art at Reading University (1991-1995). PGCE in Art and Design at Roehampton University (2001-2002)

Artist's Statement:
I am inspired by a first-hand experience of African wildlife gained whilst living in South Africa as well as from trips to Kenya and Namibia. My paintings have a strong filmic quality through the use of panoramic shapes and snapshots of individual movement, with raw and vividly cropped images. A dramatic use of colour gives the work a dynamic and contemporary feel. I make my own deep canvasses using fine linen, the sides are left unprimed as I like the contrast of the warm grey material against the colours in the painting.
