The artist, as an outsider, is ideally placed for picking up that which has been chucked out. Claire Brewster’s work is about retrieving the discarded, celebrating the unwanted and giving new life to the obsolete. 

Using maps and atlases that are rendered obsolete by the ever changing borders of countries Claire makes her entomological installations.  The birds, insects and flower cut-outs transcend borders, they pass freely between countries and are then captured by Claire and put into shadow boxes to form entomological records of past times.
