Clair Walton 

Clair Walton studied at Birmingham School of Art where she gained a First Class Honours Degree and later a Masters Degree in Fine Art.

Her work exposes the vulnerability and uncertainty of human existence, and the power of the human spirit to prevail in difficult and fragile circumstances - reflecting the hopes, courage and instincts that are held onto in moments of adversity.

She explores silencing, silenced and silences.

Informed by her background in archives and conservation, she has an interest in employing the archive as a vehicle in her practice by manipulating the concepts of time and place to bridge the gap where silence remains.
