Claire Scherzinger is an artist based in Toronto, Ontario and holds a BFA from OCAD University. She has shown her work on multiple occasions in Toronto with an upcoming solo show at Mark Christopher Gallery in February 2014.
The primary concept of this project is drawing on two-dimensional and three-dimensional planes. I create pointillist drawings that show implausible structures and designs in space through translating the act of drawing on paper to primed pieces of wood and foam that have been cut into specific shapes. This dialogue between object and drawing is what I find fascinating since many of the designs produced during the periods of Russian Constructivism and Suprematism, the main inspirations for this project, were beautiful and yet illogical.
Come Up To My Room (CUTMR) Toronto’s largest alternative design show enters a new decade with new initiatives and a diverse lineup of local and national talent: 25 installations, 60 artists, and 4000 visitors, all in under 4 days. Gladstone Managing Director of Art, Britt Welter-Nolan is joined by three new curatorial forces: Jaclyn Blumas, Robert Cram and Elise Hodson.
