Clare Brennan


I am a multidisciplinary artist specialising in cut-out silhouettes, delving into the nuanced interplay between absence and presence within the realm of childhood memories.

My artistic process involves a deliberate fusion of acrylics, markers, pencil and Perspex, often applied to commonplace materials such as cardboard and mountboard. Central to my creative expression is the transformative utilisation of Perspex and translucent materials, which transcend their conventional roles as surfaces, seamlessly integrating into the broader narrative. The act of cutting out the silhouettes plays a pivotal role in my artistic practice, affording me the opportunity to construct immersive landscapes that beckon viewers to physically engage with the created environment.

My work extends an invitation to viewers to explore the dimensions of memory.
