Claire Hynds is a London based printmaker who has exhibited throughout London and the UK and has work in collections at the V&A and the National Museum and Gallery of Wales. A lecturer in printmaking at Kensington and Chelsea College and City Lit Claire divides her time between this and her studio.
With a particular interest in etching, Claire’s research has largely been focused on an investigation into in urban environments; more specifically the effect architecture and planning has on the inhabitants. In this work she visited well known examples of Modern architecture and the planned “new” towns and cities of Hertfordshire to examine what remains of this utopian vision of post war Britain, developing work through drawing, photography and print that explores how these spaces are used today.
