in Scott Sutherland building Lecture Theatre SB42.
Claire lives and works in London and graduated in Painting from
Wimbledon College of Art, London in 2009.
Recent exhibitions include –
ING Discerning Eye Exhibition, Mall Galleries, London

Last year she also co-curated the exhibition on a return to post-minimalist practice called MATTER, and its related symposium sponsored by Abstract Critical at the APT Gallery in London.
Claire has said, “Frustration with the subjectivity of communication is the driving force behind my work. The conveyance of meaning (for example between an artist and viewer) is inevitably distorted by the artist’s transference of thought into an object of art, or verbal or written language and the resulting interpretation of this by the viewer. The ‘art’ itself seems to exist in the gap between these understandings, and I wish to achieve a greater understanding of it by removing the obstacles of subjectivity to comprehension”.
