CLAUDIA PARDUCCI

Bio

LA based artist Claudia Parducci’s work spans a multi-disciplinary practice that includes drawing, painting, and sculpture. Since receiving her MFA from CalArts in 2006 Parducci’s work has been shown in Los Angeles, nationally and internationally, exhibiting most recently at Galerie Thomas Zander in Cologne, Germany and Ochi Projects in Los Angeles, California. 

Parducci’s work comes out of an interest in histories of destruction and reconstruction. While her earlier work focused on the impact of human conflict and natural disasters, her most recent work shifts toward the nature of the cycle itself–the idea that we are always somewhere in the process of building and tearing down. She explores survival strategies, including the labour and fantasy that go into re-imagining a future after destruction. Beginning with the line as a foundation, Parducci develops her sculptures out of the line drawings. Labor intensive methods such as hand-knitting and dying, highlight time, labor and craft, particularly those associated with the feminine, and hint at the possibility of a society designed by women.
