About Claudine Metrick

 
 
  • Biography

      The task of creating is about imbuing my materials with life and encapsulating something of our ineffable sprit in the work.  I juxtapose old paintings against new, torn maps onto smoky skies, and paint shavings upon stitching as I search for the magic accident.  This simple practice in the pursuit of beauty brings clarity to my own struggles with mortality, time and loss.  Beauty is tantamount to my work serving as a metaphor for our own frailty.  We are here triumphantly for a time, but in that same moment we are delicate and fleeting.  This enormity brings me into the studio each day to question and examine our experience.
