Claire Pinney

My artwork commentates on some of the little absurdities and ironies of the human condition. A sardonic and satirical edge to the work often emerges in the process. In essence I draw and paint poignant, sometimes funny, little pictures that tell a story of our time. They can be a little quirky and sometimes gently subversive. Cartoon characters provide a degree of simplicity, perhaps naïvity to the work, but there is occasionally a thoughtful narrative lurking. I enjoy portraying characters from my imagination in places of familiarity, enabling me to explore the hidden pockets of unknowing in the midst of the ordinary and everyday.
