I was invited to participate in the “Handprint Identity Project”, a collaboration of poets and artists which has traveled since early in 2009. I worked with poet, Barbara Crooker, to develop related poetry and painting to be exhibited at the event. Barbara's poem, "Climbing the Jade Mountain", is responsible for the piece "Jade Mountain" above, and she is writing in response to "La Neige et l'hiver" (above), the sketch, and the large triptych, "La Neige et l'Hiver apportent la mort et fournissent la naissance du printemps".

Claire Giblin was born in New York City. As a child, she was tutored in studio techniques by her uncle, Western artist and historian, Vincent Mercaldo, and began creating artwork at a very young age. She continued to study fine art independently, attending life sketching, painting and art history courses in New York City at F.I.T. and in Pennsylvania at Lebanon Valley College, Millersville University and Franklin & Marshall College. She combines mediums, using acrylic, watercolor, oils, pencil, ink, encaustic and pastels on paper and canvas. Her paintings have won awards and acclaim by jurors and critics and are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States. The artist donates 10% of all proceeds from the sale of her artwork to charities which support the homeless, including The Bowery Mission in New York City and the Water Street Rescue Mission in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.



P>

I grew up in the inner city where life was never easy. I had an alcoholic father who left our home when I was five years old. He lived on the subways and streets and eventually died in New York City's Bowery section. At a very young age I began to draw. Creative expression was the means by which I was able to survive severe depression as a child and, later, as an adult, I was able to endure many hardships because of the transportation of life to art which I practiced. I created out of frustration and fear and pain and the desire to escape what was too overwhelming to understand. However, I always believed I could transcend those subjective motivations to create art that is an expression of beauty and peace.


The power of art substantiates its value in society. The premise that thoughts and emotions transcribed into visual images can affect behavior, fascinates me. The slightest suggestive response gleaned from a painting can trigger narratives of historical and contemporary events or generate feelings of pure visual excitement, social consciousness, movement and ecstasy. This points to the purpose of art -- its enormous inherent power to influence an individual, or entire civilizations. As an artist, my job is to see things differently and to present things that might lead to open conversation and understanding. Unspoken communication is a key to enlightenment and peace, and this is the thrust of my commitment as an artist.

    For your interest and enjoyment, visit the following Awesome Art blogs: "Out There" is literary giant, Jeff Weinstein's, witty, interesting and insight/inciteful media blog. Updated often, visit Out There and, while you're at it, you'll enjoy reading John Perrault's very informative and up to date art diary, "Artopia", which is also available as a podcast. Jeff happens to be a classmate from high school and John is his partner of many years. Both blogs are updated frequently, both excellent and refreshingly readable....Enjoy!
