Claire Brewster’s maps come to life

Claire Brewster uses old and out-of-date maps and atlases as her fabric to create intricate, delicate and detailed sculptures and collages. She takes her inspiration from the natural environment, creating entomological installations of flora and fauna from imagined locations. Her sculptures are either pinned directly onto the wall as a large scale installation or captured in box frames. The shadows created when light is shined on them creates a dynamic three-dimensional quality and creates a feeling of movement.
