This is the studio of Claire Nereim… an artist who first came to my attention when seeing this beautiful calendar. Claire lives and works in Los Angeles, but was born in Chicago. I'm very happy she was willing to answer my questions and shares a bit of her daily surroundings with us… about her art she says she explores the relationship between form and meaning as it pertains to the construction of memory and space… enjoy her interview below:

Art in the home of Claire Nereim

A: Art means to me… examining and re-imagining visual conventions, experimentation and play.

R: Reading books / blogs / magazines… currently I'm reading The Poetics of Space by Bachelard, and Artforum, but I am looking at so many art books every day (Cartographies of Time, Josef Albers: To Open Eyes, Alexander Girard Designs for Herman Miller…)

T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are… I always am drawn to craft and subtlety, so that is something I notice around me but it might be my own preferences at play more than a true trend.

A: Artists I admire are… Charles Ray, Ed Ruscha, Vija Celmins, Shana Lutker

N: Never will I… stop learning new things.

D: Dreams for my own work are about… having vast expanses of uninterrupted time in my studio. I dream about dividing my week into days exclusively for drawing, printing, weaving, free time, and
sewing.

10-studio

P: Projects I'm currently working on are… a large screenprint star map, some tabletop sculptures, and I am learning how to marble paper, which is really fun.

R: Relaxing I do at … hiking, reading, swimming, and taking care of my plants.

I: Interesting art-places online are… Intelligent ClashingEast of BorneoBird and Banner, AnAmbitious Project Collapsing, and these are only the tip of the iceberg, really!

N: New in my home is… a painting of the inside of a rock, by my friend Simone Montemurno. It's an exciting addition, and our very first painting.

7-home

T: Tomorrow I like to go to… relax at home after classes and studio.

S: Studio, my studio is… such a wonderful place to work. I have nice light, two small plants, and tall walls. I like to keep lots of books, objects and postcards to look at, and I love to rearrange.
