The Crowns at Botallack
acrylic on canvas
Clare Hughes is, predominantly, a landscape and seascape artist, whose work is inspired by the historic, tin mining landscape of Cornwall. Her views are expressed by her emotional and visual responses to the mark left on the landscape, by the mining culture.
Using mainly acrylic paint on canvas and board, Clare works on capturing the energy, the wildness, and the way the landscape has been shaped by the extremities of the elements, industry, and by human interaction.
