Claire is an Austin based artist whose work spans various disciplines – drawing, painting, and sculpture. After two years of leaving the art world to design textiles with a fellow artist, she wanted to return artisanship and craft to her daily life in the studio. She thus began to work antithetically to her older, rigorous and representational work. Redirecting the discipline towards minimal, watercolor compositions, relying on “the energy behind quick decisions, and the ruthlessness to pair the work down to the essential.” She seeks to juxtapose spontaneity with restraint, dynamic with static, until reaching a harmonious form, largely worked over, yet clear in its intention to never show it.
Claire’s work has shown in Berlin, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Austin, and Marfa, Texas.
