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 digital and analogue mediums to develop the core of her practice, which is the process of building new worlds. Although she mainly uses digital tools and media 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 in interdisciplinary arts from the University of Victoria. Her work has appeared in exhibitions across Canada and internationally in the US and UK.
She was a purchase prize winner of the 2015 Royal Bank of Canada funded Painting Competition and was shortlisted for the Equitable Bank Emerging Digital Artist Award in 2019.
Scherzinger currently resides in the Pacific Northwest, and in 2021 became a member of SOIL Artist Collective in Seattle.
