Claire Stringer

Laos Studies

"Early in 2002 I spent 3 weeks alone in Laos PDR, South East Asia. During this time I visited remote hill tribes and made drawings based around the markets and people. I find these people fascinating. They are living a simple and ancient way of life which rests on a fragile balance, one which is increasingly threatened by the social and economic changes of the modern world.

On returning from this visit, I worked from the initial drawings and vivid memories and produced a series of paintings. They retain the simplicity of the initial response and the vibrancy of the people and colourfulness of Laos.

This experience and the work I made in relation to it has continued to influence my paintings since, especially in the way I use and understand colour."
