Claire Zinn is a full-time artist based in Johannesburg. Her main focus is the natural world, one that excludes humans. In addition to vast landscapes, many of her works feature the small but essential creatures and plants that allow life to flourish. This fascination and admiration stem from a lifetime spent camping in reserves around South Africa as well as afternoons gardening with her father. She strives to create an entanglement of images, ideas and events as well as feeding her obsession with achieving photorealistic perfection through tiny detail.
