Melbourne Alumni Event - Postponed
QT Melbourne, Paramount Room, 133 Russell Street, Melbourne
Please join us at our UOW alumni event in Melbourne, featuring UOW alumna, artist and designer, Claire Foxton, who has rapidly developed a large body of public art since 2016.
There will also be a chance to enjoy drinks and canapés before and after Claire’s talk.
Meet Claire Foxton
Through a hybrid of abstraction and realism, Claire's art practice explores the triumphs and strength of the human condition via large scale public portraiture.
Strongly process-driven, her approach to abstract forms is responsive and immediate. This energetic, colourful visual space is kept in tension with her critical realist portraiture and the careful planning required to execute large-scale public art.
Claire’s public art practice brings the traditions of portraiture into spaces often reserved for decoration or advertising. Her murals are concerned with the truth of a place and its people – the everyday heroes who help realise their communities.
Claire’s style has evolved from a mix of formal education and improvised techniques. Her works teeter on the edge of control and intuition, guided by her roots in Design and influenced by characteristics of Abstract Expressionism.
Claire’s work can be found throughout Australia, New Zealand & in the US. You can see some of Claire’s work on her website or Instagram page.
We hope you can join us to hear more from our speaker and network with your fellow UOW alumni.
