Claire Greenshaw is a Toronto-based artist working in drawing and sculpture. Working from a feminist perspective, she employs humour, appropriation and strategies of abstraction to examine history and society through images and objects from daily life. Greenshaw is interested in examining the boundaries of perception, the status of a drawn image and the mechanics of the gaze. Miniatures is from a series of drawings of found notes, ranging from private dialogues to shopping lists, which explored ideas around the vernacular and the domestic. Greenshaw received an MFA from the Glasgow School of Art (2009) and a BFA from NSCAD University (2002). She has exhibited in numerous exhibitions, including the Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver); the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery (Sarnia); Fisch Haus (Wichita); The Power Plant (Toronto); Royal Standard (Liverpool); and Neon Gallery (Brosarp). Recent solo exhibitions include Clint Roenisch Gallery, Mulherin (both Toronto); and The Khyber (Halifax).
