Featured Community Artist – Claire Hamel

Continuing our local artist series, our next artist is Claire Hamel.

Claire is a self-taught artist, born and raised in Alberta. She has been drawing for most of her life and enjoys dabbling in and mixing mediums. As a big fan of fantasy, myths and legends, it is often the subject of her work and she loves including the mystery and magic of animals with a dash of Surrealism.

“Self” and “Brother” as part of a series titled “Family Portraits”

This series showcases the trauma caused by a mother plagued with addiction and how she was eventually overcome by her illness, thus becoming distant from her children. All the photos were once cherished memories but later developed into reminders of the horror that is my mother. In the pictures, my mother looks as if she is looking to bond with her children, but the wire is keeping her from achieving this. The photos now remind me of the trauma and hardships created by my mother which have had an everlasting effect on my siblings and I.

Our community is proud to feature works by our local artists.

Her most recent pieces are created on wood using a 3 tone palette. Wood cutting creates the white, pyrography (wood burning) creates the black, and the natural wood grain creates the mid-tone. Currently, she concentrates on portraits of animals and people.

She has previously displayed at the Calgary Central Library, Ironwood, Blues Can, Winos, Pages, cSPACE King Edward, the Epcor Centre, and will be at the Central Library July 2020.
