Jan Murphy Gallery is pleased to present 'Flowers' - the new exhibition from Claudia Greathead. Claudia Greathead’s latest body of work continues the artist's personal journey and exploration of the world around her. These intimate paintings invite the viewer into the artist's world and encourage us to slow down, contemplate and reflect. “Subjects such as flowers, insects, or eery landscape scenes, validate feelings, show a felt sense in the world, and support a feeling and knowing of belonging. This body of work is using art to find meaning, to be more present and to notice and admire. By painting flowers means to see and understand (or hope to understand) softness, fragility, beauty, kindness, strength, openness and love, and to know that these qualities are always here in the world." - Claudia Greathead, 2021 Born in Brisbane in 1993 and now based in Melbourne, Claudia Greathead is a graduate of Queensland College of Art and is currently completing a Masters of Art Therapy at La Trobe University, Melbourne. In recent years Greathead has been a finalist in the Doug Moran Portrait Prize, the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship and is a two-time finalist in the Churchie Emerging Art Prize.
