Claire Rosen is an award-winning artist whose transportive imagery uses universal themes of dreams, fairy tales, and mythology to visually symbolize the many facets of the human condition. Her elaborate tableaux constructions often feature anthropomorphic animals or solitary heroines, evoking the aesthetics and ideals of classical painting from the Pre-Raphaelite, Romantic, and Gothic periods.
In 2012 and 2013, Claire earned a place on the Forbes “30 Brightest under 30” list for Art & Design. Her work has also received recognition from Aesthetica Art Prize, Communication Arts Photography Annual, International Photography Awards, Graphis, PDN Photo Annual, Photoville Fence, Photolucida Critical Mass, Prix de la Photographie, and Sony World Awards. Her work has been featured in Beautiful/Decay, Communication Arts, Complex Art+Design, Creative Quarterly Journal, Der Greif, Direct Art, Faded + Blurred, Fast Company, Feature Shoot, The Guardian UK, Hi Fructose Magazine, Juxtapoz Magazine, PDN’s Emerging Photographer, Refinery29, The Rumpus, Slate Magazine, and The World Photography Organization.
Claire has been exhibited from New York to Los Angeles and London to Seoul, and her work can be found in a number of public and private collections. In 2013, Claire had her first solo museum show at the the SCAD Savannah Museum of Art in Georgia. Her fine art work has been included in a number of juried group shows at Aperture Gallery, Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA), Consensus, MOPLA, PhotoPlace Gallery, with four consecutive years on the public art installation Photoville Fence in Atlanta, Boston, Brooklyn, Houston, and 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, Claire’s portfolio of commissioned images bridges the gap between fine art and commercial work.
In addition, Claire has taught workshops and lectured about the creative process and photography around the world. Claire is a brand ambassador for Dynalite, Hahnemühle USA, and liveBooks.
