These experiences allowed her the opportunity to express and exhibit her own artworks both interstate and abroad. Influenced by her immediate environment and personal experience; the landscape, human figure, and organic forms are captured and translated through rich colours and symbolic shapes on canvas and paper.
A self taught printmaker, using traditional intaglio etching techniques Clare narratives her personal stories using local endangered flora and fauna as motifs in surreal landscapes of old maps, music sheets and old text pages.Images of insects, birds and fish represent other ‘worlds’ that co-exist alongside mankind. Clare’s images illustrate the ideal of man/woman becoming one with these ‘worlds’ once again.Clare Whitney now resides in Melbourne and works from her studio in the heart of the city.Dedicating herself full time to her art, she continues to create and exhibit recent works from her studio and galleries throughout Melbourne.
