Claire Bridge has always masterfully executed the models who have graced her canvases. Painstakingly she has elevated them with a skillset likened to Master painters of old, rendering reclining nudes and subjects gazing wistfully into a star-spattered sky. Yet with her latest body of work she has consciously relaxed her hand, allowed her paintbrush to lay lightly within her fingertips and instead of depicting the life model before her with an acute analytic gaze, she has allowed her mind to wander.
