Claire Browne’s art practice focuses on the themes of self-identity and heritage. She is particularly interested in landscape and the deep connection that people have between land and self-identity. Her own family’s stories consist of travel, displacement and adapting to new lands and cultural spaces. Through painting the Caribbean island St. Vincent and the Grenadines, where her paternal family originates, Claire attempts to navigate the cultural spaces and stories of her childhood allowing for new narratives to appear.

Her interest in the botanical world is a recurring theme, particularly the colonial nature of uprooting and transforming the meaning and structure of plants, which is a lasting legacy of colonial racism with lasting effects seen to this day. The delicate nature of the botanical world is viewed with care and wonder as these structures are appreciated for their beauty and historical legacy.
