BIOGRAPHY

about.jpg
  • Claire Rosen is an award-winning artist whose transportive imagery uses universal themes of dreams, fairy tales and mythology to visually symbolize the many facets of the human condition. Her elaborate tableaux constructions often feature anthropomorphic animals or solitary heroines, evoking the aesthetics and ideals of classical painting from the Pre-Raphaelite, Romantic, and Gothic periods. The whimsical images explore concepts of nostalgia, memory, femininity and depictions of the self, frequently referencing the Victorian Era with its fascination of the natural world and ideals of beauty.
  • In 2012 and 2013, Claire earned a place on the Forbes “30 Brightest under 30” list for Art & Design.
