Studio visit with Claire Idera for INTERSECTIONS

Studio visit with Claire Idera for INTERSECTIONS; a group exhibition with four contemporary Nigerian artists.

The artists’ work explores themes around the paradox and consequence of choice, the importance of documentation, and dares to challenge societal stereotypes.

“The paintings celebrate individualism, experiences, growth and clarity” – Claire Idera.

Claire is a self-taught visual artist with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture and a Masters degree in Fashion Design from Kingston University London. While her creative background forms her artistic processes, She creates delicate representations of the young black woman in a transformative state of introspection.

Claire’s work centers around personal journals from childhood through motherhood using portraiture and ethereal aesthetics. She is fascinated by the idea of identity while considering the role growth plays in finding it. With every brushstroke, she attempts to relate the physical and mental metamorphosis about the female being using whimsical elements and colors. She works with a range of materials from oil to watercolor to acrylic and plastic.
