Belinda Sinclair 'Weather Lore'
Belinda Sinclair is a Redcliffe based Visual Artist and Printmaker with a focus on photo-media. Inspired by the landscape Belinda's work engages with spirits of place to explore states of unease and disquiet against the backdrop of an increasingly complex world.
Earth and Sea, spirits at the edge of the unseen, 'Weather Lore' is a suite of images engaging the viewer in place and magic. Navigating the space between people, environment and time, images emerge in the twilight and in the liminal spaces of the sea in its tides, here messengers of the air strike their pose, boundless upon the earth.
Evolving from a significant interest in science fiction, folklore and the occult, Sinclair’s works serve as portals into her inner world building and utopian praxis. Engaging with symbolic play, observation and the interaction between the human and the more than human, the photogravures featured in Weather Lore developed over a turbulent two year period defined by fire, storm and flood; and represent the beginning of a new chapter in Sinclair’s practice.
