Monochromatic paintings and drawings by Brighton based artist Claire Barrett.

'Standing amidst a sea of ink, stand firm and establish your own views. Determine your life beneath the tip of your brush and within a foot of silk transfigure [styles] and within the chaos liberate new light. Then, even if the ink fails to come to life, even if your brush is dead, even if the painting doesn't work, at least the "me" in it remains.'

​Shi Tao 1641-c.1717
