Claire Heidinger

Artist member since 2021
Toronto, ON

Claire Heidinger is a Toronto-based visual artist with a BFA from OCAD University, specializing in Drawing and Painting, and Art History. Investigating a visual fetishism created by the gaze, she creates large-scale oil paintings and experiments with food produce in expanded painting. Claire’s practice is dependent on heavy research, motivated by diasporic sentimentality, identity, and accessibility. Currently investigating cross-cultural trade between East and West, the historical transposition of media in ceramics and painting, inspiring Claire to bring forth a contemporary practice that depicts characters in reflection of western iconography in order to regain the sovereignty of the gaze.
