BIOGRAPHY

about.jpg
  • Claire Rosen is an award-winning artist whose elaborate constructions often feature anthropomorphic animals, archetypal heroines, or symbolic still-lives evoking the aesthetics of classical painting influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites and referencing the Victorian Era. The transportive images captivate with a fascination of the natural world and ideals of beauty.

  • In 2012 and 2013, Claire earned a place on Forbes “30 under 30” list for Art & Design. Her work has also received recognition from Aesthetica Art Prize, Communication Arts Photo Annual, IPA, Graphis, PDN Photo Annual, People’s Choice Photoville Fence, Photolucida Critical Mass, Prix de la Photographie and Sony World Awards. Her work has been featured in Complex Art+Design, Creative Quarterly Journal, Der Greif, Direct Art, Faded + Blurred, Fast & Co, featureShoot, The Guardian UK Observer, HiFructose Magazine, Juxtapoz, NPR Weekend Edition, National Geographic, PDN, Refinery29, Slate Magazine, The Washington Post Insights, and The World Photography Organization.

  • Exhibited worldwide, from New York to Seoul, Rosen's work can be found in a number of collections. Her first solo museum show was at SCAD Savannah Museum of Art in 2013 and the work has been included in juried and group shows at the Annenberg Space for Photography, Aperture Gallery, Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Consensus, MOPLA, PhotoPlace Gallery, with five consecutive years on the Photoville Fence in Atlanta, Boston, Brooklyn, Calgary, Houston & Santa Fe.
  • The vivid storytelling throughout Claire's work has enabled her to construct unique creative campaigns and installations for a wide range of commercial brands. From fashion labels to luxury hotels, book publishers to restaurants, her portfolio of commissioned images bridges the gap between fine art and commercial work.
  • In addition,Claire speaks about the creative process around the world. Her book, IMAGINARIUM: The Process Behind the Pictures, published by Rocky Nook, covers the artistic practice of photography. Claire is a brand ambassador for Dynalite, FujiFilm US, Hahnemühle USA and liveBooks.
  • Claire graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006 and Bard College at Simon's Rock in 2003.
