  • Although the sea is potentially an all too familiar subject matter, the very vastness of our oceans allow for never-ending fascination, renewed interpretations and personal responses.” Clare Smith

     

    The coast is not just a shifting ribbon separating land from water.  It is a place of opposites, of conflicting ideas and feelings.  This collection of ink drawings from Clare Smith's Beachtime Stories have been curated from a larger series created over a period of one hundred days and concentrates on images that capture the fast-changing moods and nature of our coastline.  Some focus on bleak shorelines evoking fear of the open sea and the dangers that await us when the weather and tides are against us.  Others bring warmth and optimism, with the flora and fauna and almost tropical shoreline foliage set in epic landscape.

    Clare Smith is a UK based artist and the co-founder of Dover Arts Development working with artists, curating and creating exhibitions and networks across East Kent. She has a BA from the University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury and an MA from Central St Martins, London.  She was born in Penang, Malaysia and was educated in England.  Her relationship with the sea dates back to her early childhood in Penang and frequent visits to the beach, memories of which were prompted as she created these drawings, mostly of beaches and sea views in Kent.  Now living in Dover, near to the sea, after many years away from it, seems no accident.  

    Part of the 100 day project, Smith used her own huge library of photos (the sheer amount reflecting her ‘never-ending fascination’of the sea) as a resource for this series of ink drawings, which she created, fittingly, in a formulaic large postcard format of 15x23 cms on a thick fine art paper. 

    The series was originally exhibited in it's entirety at The Line Gallery, Margate in November 2019.
