Look Sea – Claire Loder’s Many Faces

Thursday, June 16, 2011 · 6 Comments

Claire Loder’s ceramic and painted faces via all the mountains. These portraits are just incredible. Just lovely, lovely work.



This one’s called Trophy Wife.


“Each piece of work is an amalgamation of influences – people I meet, faces in print…” Their resolute humanness is uncanny as is our ability to process these faces and imagine underlying narratives.

Claire has an upcoming show and blog with fellow Brit Jo Chambers who makes THE coolest dog portraits.

    Hello Kate! What a nice surprise to see my wonderful friend Claire on Art Hound and then to see me at the bottom too!
    Super talented and ultra lovely, Claire is most definitely both. x
    Hope you’re well.

    Thanks for the post Kate – that collection of 6 heads looks especially awkward and wary so I’d say they are pretty much at home!

    Lovely poem, Robin. Here’s a triolet I just came arcoss by A.E. Stallings: Triolet on a Line Apocryphally Attributed to Martin LutherWhy should the Devil get all the good tunes,The booze and the neon and Saturday night,The swaying in darkness, the lovers like spoons?Why should the Devil get all the good tunes?Does he hum them to while away sad afternoonsAnd the long, lonesome Sundays? Or sing them for spite?Why should the Devil get all the good tunes,The booze and the neon and Saturday night?
