With the belief that good art will elevate the imagination, Claire Huang’s art presents what she imagines could be rather than what she actually sees. Describing her art as “a tribute to the places that evoke a moment of contemplation,” she enjoys spaces that have mystery and atmosphere. Claire explores the duality of a conscious world filtered through ambiguity and clarity.
