Claire Bloomfield is a new media artist originally from the USA and currently residing in Da Nang, Vietnam. She is a curator and co-founder of an online digital residency program, Mineral House Media, and a traditional tantra yoga teacher. Claire combines various methods of making including painting, sculpture, and photography to create tantalising works of art. She aims for her final pieces to look “unearthed” from nature as if they were an artefact. She also loves to explore the limits of loose pigments, inks, and watercolours. She prefers to make work fast, automatic, and without thinking. She finds this process more interesting because she can reflect on the work and discover its meaning; rather than planning and limiting her actions with too much conscious control.
