Claire Eleanor Fergusson

"As an artist, I combine concept, mark-making, photography, and live action in my work. My work uses these forms both singularly and in various combinations. For example I have used the performance situation to both explore the act of making art and to create works of art. The performance in its immediacy helps to reinforce the situation of being 'free from presuppositions' and in this way lends a directnes to the works of art being created... For me each work of art is its own 'reach into the unknown' for truth rather than a development of a style or technique. The pieces I made when I was the most open and free from presuppositions are the pieces I find the most meaningful."
