Things We Love: thoughtful & thought provoking art.
And a damn good story!
Stories of connection and sentiment, those that draw you in with their personality and character, are the stories we love to hear, touch and feel through our art. They are, more often than not, the driving rationale behind our decision to make a purchase and invest in something beautiful, in something that ~ simply hangs ~ on our walls.
They're the kind of stories we connect with and share on an everyday basis at The Life Style Edit, which makes artist Prue Clay, a fitting profile to relay with you. With quite the narrative, Prue was born and raised on a farm in rural Barham, New South Wales, and has always felt a connection to the land.
Suffering vision impairment for over 3 months in her twenties, to this day Prue still sees the world through patches of blurred vision. From the mountains of Tasmania to the rich bays of Queensland, her painting practice draws on memory and observation to create emotionally-rich, abstracted landscapes.
Through her unique appreciation of depth and light, Prue takes the viewer to a place that is both vividly photographic and deeply imaginative, allowing us to grasp her art through an emotive and physical sense. With her story woven so tightly and so poetically throughout her canvases, we look forward to keeping our eye on Prue and where the future lies for this talented Artist.
