About

Claire Pendrigh is an Australian visual artist working across media including painting, installation and new media. Originally from Canberra, her art practice has taken her as far as Iceland, New York and Japan, and she has exhibited in Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Japan. Pendrigh currently lives and works in Tasmania, Australia.

Pendrigh’s work is characterised by a search to locate the individual within the mechanics of our macrocosm. Often combining concepts from science with elements and materials from the domestic, Pendrigh’s work explores the tension between the scale of the universe and the everyday experience of being human.
