'Nature's Own Pathways' by Clare Haley

'Nature's Own Pathways' by Clare Haley

With great delight, York Fine Arts proudly announces its fourth annual solo exhibition of original paintings by contemporary landscape artist Clare Haley. ‘Clare Haley: Light of Yorkshire’ showcases a spellbinding collection of work that magnificently articulates the raw, dramatic beauty of landscape and light. From placid, sunlit valleys of green to suspenseful, stormy skies, the exhibition presents a spectacular selection of Clare’s paintings that tell a comprehensive story of the multifaceted northern landscape she so loves.

The exhibition is an opportunity for discerning art collectors and first-time buyers alike to view an exclusive collection of artwork from one of the most exciting emerging artists of the north. A timeless bridge between the traditional heritage of the arts and the innovation of contemporary vision, Clare Haley’s work offers a universal appeal to even the most diverse range of collectors. The exhibition also provides a chance for collectors and visitors to meet Clare. From 11:30am-2:00pm on Saturday, the 27th of July, visitors will have a special opportunity to meet Clare and discuss the exhibition, her work, her inspiration and her life as a professional artist.

As Clare Haley was born and raised in West Yorkshire, it is no coincidence that Clare’s largest solo exhibition of the year also coincides with Yorkshire Day, celebrated on the 1st of August. Gallery Manager Deanna Dawkins says, “The decision to schedule Clare’s exhibition to coincide with Yorkshire Day was always a natural conclusion. Her passion for the northern landscape and her proud Yorkshire roots are so deeply ingrained in her paintings that really, a celebration of Clare’s work is a celebration of Yorkshire itself and all that it has to offer.”

Arguably one of Yorkshire’s top emerging artists, ‘Light of Yorkshire’ Clare Haley exquisitely captures the emotion and ethereal nature of the British landscape with unparalleled ingenuity. Working primarily from memory, Clare creates paintings that push the boundaries of imagination whilst retaining an organic authenticity. Since 2010, she has flourished as a professional artist, attaining great success and gaining an international, loyal following at an astonishing pace.

Clare describes her work as “contemporary northern landscapes which mostly appear timeless, of any era—earthy, wild places to become lost in.” She develops the atmospheric content of her paintings through location photography, research of weather and cloud consequences, imagined places and her experience living in an area of raw beauty. With nods to the drama of John Martin’s apocalyptic paintings and to the colours and heritage of Sidney Richard Percy’s landscapes, Clare’s own unique style resurrects the tradition of British landscape painting and brings it into the 21st century with graceful transcendence.

The exhibition opens at York Fine Arts on Friday, 26th of July and runs until Sunday, 18th of August 2018. Due to expected high volume of interest, an early viewing is recommended. Preview catalogues will also be available upon request.
