Clare Welling: Painting My Way Home
Clare Welling is an innovative landscape painter, whose latest work features real lights, animating and creating an absorbing atmosphere within her nightscape paintings of Lincolnshire landscapes.
“I want to engulf the viewer in my work. I’m very aware when travelling how small I am in my car against the backdrop of the Lincolnshire sky. I hope to recreate that feeling within the space and draw viewers into my paintings” says Clare. “The lights in the distance of my view are my guide and I feel very aware of where I am heading and where I want to be”.
Clare has been greatly inspired by the poems of Philip Larkin and his descriptions of the sky, land and views as he travelled through Lincolnshire. Her smaller pieces and sketchbooks show reference to his writing and ‘illustrate’ verses and phrases from his poems.
