Claudia Terstappen

Claudia Terstappen is an artist who explores notions of ritual and sacred spaces, from the ornate altars of Southern Spain to the expanse of the Australian bush.

Through her large scale photography and evocative installations she explores culture, time and place, the importance of symbols and relics, totems and icons and the interplay between religion, superstition and science

From isolation in Barcelona she tells us more about her creative practice and how she created her work for her exhibition Culture Spirit Identity at WAG (Warrnambool Art Gallery) in 2016 and a commission for acquisition to the WAG Collection
