Claire McArdle’s artwork traverses tropes of classical sculpture while drawing on the artist’s own imaginings and mythology. Crafted in marble, bronze, terra-cotta, and other media, McArdle’s sculptures synthesize elements of traditional classical sculpture with aesthetic qualities found in Cycladic sculpture and cave art. Growing up in Washington D.C., McArdle was exposed to the city’s rich array of cultural institutions at a young age and developed an attraction to classical forms early on. After completing her undergraduate degree, she traveled to Carrara, Italy, to study with artisans learned in centuries-old production techniques.
