Biography

Claudia Wieser apprenticed as a blacksmith before studying to be a painter, though she has become known for her multimedia installations and drawings. Her works utilize many plastic materials like mirror, copper, ceramic, wood, and paper; she also draws on architecture, handicrafts, and techniques from the Arts and Crafts Movement in her practice. Certain projects, however, have a more research-based or specific point of reference, for example her tableaux of glazed ceramic inspired by the Bauhaus and Wassily Kandinsky’s 1931 music room, or immersive installations of photocopies based on Belgian interiors. A common trait of Wieser’s work is the use of strong geometric, ornate forms, and a selective application of color. She also employs these in her drawings, often via gold leaf or colored pencil additions on found imagery.
