> DESCRIPTION

In "Gravity Always Wins," Claire Jackel's re-creations of disasters personalize events that, in a desensitized state, we relegate to the land of statistics. Her paper models depict the familiar (airplanes, buses, trains, suburban neighborhoods and city blocks) seen through a lens of fragility. The process is a meditation on issues of control, destructive potential, memory, and social anxieties.

Claire Jackel works primarily in painting and sculpture, using news media to remodel catastrophic events. She received her MFA in 2009 from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been shown internationally, including exhibitions at Root Division, San Francisco and Escuela Nacional de Artes Plasticas, Mexico City. Living and working in San Francisco, Claire teaches through the Good for Kids Foundation.
