About the Artist
The work of Claire Beynon has a spiritual quality, and much of it centres around questions of sustainability, balance and our place on earth – or beyond. Also a writer, she has a strong following, exploring those issues, pointing to the ideas of other thinkers and artists, stimulating debate and thought.
Captured in her most recent jewellery pieces, Claire Beynon’s exploration of ‘Questions of Balance’ began in 2009, very much about questions to do with care of the planet, and climate change; yet these works seem perfectly poised for current times as we are thrown off balance by pandemic and social/political uncertainty. Her sculptures seem to anchor thought. Her artist’s statement and an extraordinary poem are available to view on request.
