Bio: Claire Scherzinger depicts the uncanny as a way of resisting systems of power and considering better ways to live within western civilization. Scherzinger is an interdisciplinary artist, working with drawing, painting, gaming engines and podcasting to develop the core of her practice, which is the process of building new worlds. Although she uses different mediums, she approaches her practice with the internal logic of a painter.
Claire Scherzinger has a BFA in drawing and painting and creative writing from OCAD University and an MFA from the University of Victoria. Her work has appeared in exhibitions across Canada and internationally in venues such as Mulherin Toronto and Mulherin New York; Eastern Edge Gallery in St. John’s Newfoundland, Forest City Gallery in London, ON, and she was a purchase prizewinner of the 2015 Royal Bank of Canada funded Painting Competition. Upcoming exhibitions include solo projects at YYZ in Toronto and the Varley Art Gallery in Markham, ON. She is also the host of the art podcast Overly Dedicated and is in the process of developing a new fictional series podcast titled ARCA-45672 with the support of the University of Victoria. She currently lives and works between Seattle, WA and Victoria, BC.
