Claire Kennedy is a contemporary painter and mixed media artist living in Glasgow, Scotland. After a career in teaching, she has been painting full time since 2014 and has exhibited in group shows in various galleries in Glasgow and the west of Scotland. Largely self-taught, she works primarily in acrylics, exploring layered and textured effects, often incorporating an image of black and white photography as a final printed layer.

‘I work with acrylic paints, collage and photography, scratching, scraping and lifting to reveal hidden layers and colours. I am drawn to old things, weathered things, often overlooked things, and the colours and patterns which appear there over time: layers of chipped paint on the side of a skip, a watery bloom of rusting metal around a pump outlet on a Calmac ferry – inspiration can strike in the oddest of places! I enjoy exploring the different textures of paint – brushmarks, glazings and spatters – and pairing this with the starkness of a black and white photographic image.

My favourite part of the process isn’t the actual painting, it’s the taking-off of the paint – I do this between each layer with various implements including an old credit card, a rag, a screwdriver or an old quill pen. Although I work with a very considered palette, I’m never 100% sure what lies beneath, and it’s this element of surprise which I find most exciting and which drives me to paint the next picture.’
