CAM1 Bron Mynyddoedd #1 (Almost Mountains) diptych, Panel 1. Claire A Mason. 2012.Acrylic on canvas stretcher. $250. Claire's landscapes often explore issues of place and displacement and memories. As part of the global generation whose homes and passports already span several nations at an early age, Claire uses storytelling and myths from a range of cultures and nations to enrich her work. She sees herself as an archivist of moments and traces of everyday life, capturing key moments that would otherwise pass from view.
This landscape, which could so easily be New Zealand hills, is Claire's response to the Welsh hills of her teenage years, hence the Welsh title. This painting is part of a diptych, which the artist is happy to sell as 2 separate panels.
