Claire Mooney uses the language of abstraction to explore overlapping ideas relating to text and textiles, encoding and craft, landscape and technology.

Recent works take inspiration from textiles and quilting, bringing together fragments of colour and pattern to create works that inexorably slide from order to entropy.

Claire Mooney completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at RMIT in 1999, a Master of Visual Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2004, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education at The University of Melbourne in 2010.
She has been a practising artist for the past 15 years, and has exhibited her work regularly in solo and curated shows.
Since 2006, Claire has been actively involved in the Melbourne ARI sector, at various stages acting in the role of administrator, gallery director, researcher, board and committee member, advisor and education program coordinator.
