Claire Ashley

Her work inhabits the liminal space between painting, sculpture, and performance. She also expresses the language of painterly abstraction, monumental sculpture, slapstick humour, and pop art to transform mundane industrial materials into inflatable painted sculptures and performative props. She is interested in the assumptions and history of both painting and sculpture and engages in intellectual play, testing the boundaries and expectations of each medium, while exploring the possibilities of low-brow, mundane, unconventional materials.

I really enjoy that she breaks the boundaries of art making. Her appearance of abstract painting is visualized through industrial materials and sculptural form. I enjoy the use combination of

expressive painting in opposition to the linearity and the rigidity of adhesive tape and vinyl stencils.
