Artist Claire Burke in her Surrey studio in the UK

Claire burke

A truly international artist, Claire Burke’s work has been sourced for clients both private and corporate. From gorgeous private ski chalet, The Four Seasons Royal Suite in Riyadh, the cruise ship Brittania, private yachts and of course many beautiful homes. The private bank Kleinwort Benson recently acquired a significant work for their collection.

Claire graduated from Falmouth School of Art for her foundation, progressed immediately to Central St. Martins to complete her BA Hons Painting in 1994 and has never looked back.

Claire’s work has been exhibited on a global scale in Miami, New York, Switzerland, Singapore and Hong Kong and now we are thrilled to represent her exclusively in the Nordics.

Currently represented by the Unit gallery in London Claire and influential interior designers such as FBI, Louise Bradley, Linley, Terrence Disdale, and Nicolas Haslam we are delighted to introduce her work to Scandinavian designers.

Her work using traditional gilding techniques has a meditative quality playing on the light and space of her childhood home. Utilising materials such as gold size, silver leaf, bole and dragons blood the work is made up of many layers which when dry are then 'distressed' with a cracking product. As the artist has no control over the final process the effect is both organic and unique.

We are proud to represent Claire’s work exclusively in the Nordics and you can book a private view of her work at our Malmö gallery.
