Claire Falkenstein (Oregon, US, 1908 – Los Angeles, US, 1997)
Claire Falkenstein was an American sculptor, painter, printmaker, jewelry designer, and teacher, most renowned for her often large-scale abstract metal and glass public sculptures. Falkenstein relentlessly explored media, techniques, and processes with uncommon daring and intellectual rigour. Falkenstein first worked in the San Francisco Bay Area, then in Paris and New York, and finally in Los Angeles. She was involved with art groups as radical as the “Gutai Group” in Japan and “Art Autre”. An interest in Einstein’s theories of the universe inspired Falkenstein to create sculptures from wire and fused glass that explored the concept of infinite space.
