Artist Notes:
Claire Curneen lives and works in Cardiff. She has an established reputation and her work can be seen in many major galleries. She had a traditional Irish Catholic upbringing and images connected to Christian traditions are important to her. She responds strongly to the work ofsuch artists as Piero della Francesca. Her chosen medium is usually porcelain. Touches of gold draw attention to particular areas or can rtepresent the shedding of blood. St Sebastian has all the qualities of tenderness to be seen in much of Claire’s work. The saint is seen as a young boy, which adds to the poignancy.
