Submission: Claire Minnihan

“As far as the inspiration behind the first, I was experimenting with water and watercolor and idea of what it is to be a women. I don’t want to say much beyond that because I feel the emotion of the piece is ambiguous. I want the viewer to decide if they’re drowning or swimming, if they mean to be in the pool or not. As for the second piece ‘us’ I was inspired by physical romantic encounters I’ve had. Times when passion and touching make it hard to differentiate your body from the others, I wanted it to capture that love and desire for an almost impossible closeness.”
