"In my work I explore the fluid and shifting boundaries between the landscape and our own selves. Drawing on my previous work as an archaeologist and my interest in walking and climbing, my artwork reflects the continuing process of creation and destruction within the natural world, from geological strata to paths and climbing routes, from ancient stone circles to classical ruins, from wave swept beaches to wind eroded cliffs."
Clare Yarrington MA (Hons) Archaeology (Edin); BA (Hons) Fine Art (Sheffield Hallam)
Clare is a visual artist based in central Scotland who has exhibited both nationally and internationally. Many of her works explore the relationship between ourselves and the wild landscape, both in terms of how we interact with nature when climbing and walking, and the remains we leave behind in the landscape, many of which are only discovered through archaeology. She has won various awards, including the J.D. Fergusson Art Award, Perth; the Diageo Purchase Prize, Stirling; the Derbyshire Trophy, Buxton and the Printmakers Council exhibition prize, Newcastle and her work is in both public and private collections. Clare teaches life drawing and leads workshops in collograph printmaking, mixed-media and drawing. She has worked with Historic Scotland and the John Muir Trust and has led art projects for schools and local councils.
