Piece description from the artist
This photograph was taken at the Water Castle in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It captures the serene beauty of life/decay.
Claire Stringer is a Chicago-based artist who uses a variety of materials to study dualism in both personal and cultural life. Through applying her background in Art History, Stringer often responds to the notion of HIGH and LOW art, and GOOD and BAD taste. Focusing mainly in the craft of collage, she blends these divisions to create compositions that convey both tension and synthesis. Often collaborating with artists around the country via mail, her works are embedded with reminders of community and pluralism.
