Claire Stening: Shutter Light

29th July - 16th August

Edwina Corlette Gallery

Surface. Texture. Shadow. The play of light on fabric, the transparency of glass, the softer structures of draped silk and the pure contours of ceramics, eggs or a pear. Painting the unique in the commonplace is Claire Stening’s obsession. Her compositions approach a calm, almost weightless monumentality, and her natural inclination toward a neutral palette adds contemporaneity to her work while also calling to mind the sublime paintings of Italian modernist Giorgio Morandi.

Claire received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Communication from Chisholm Institute of Technology (now Monash University) in 1987, and has exhibited extensively throughout Australia. She was a finalist in the Portia Geech Memorial Award 2010 and was invited to show with the Salon Des Refusés each year from 2008-2010. Her work is held in numerous private collections.
