Artist Claudia Greathead describes her style as 'gestural, and, I hope, a little bit funny'. Recently her practice has centered on mourning the past and appreciating the present. Art writer Elle Charalambu notes, 'Greathead conjures up an uncanny ghostliness out of the mundane ... Her paintings are shrouded in a persistent elusiveness. They show how the pursuit of truth through a revisitation of the past can sometimes lead to an even greater incomprehensibility. This only makes her work more enduring and though these images are born out of personal experience, they are autonomous in their ambiguity and take on a life of their own.'
Since graduating from Queensland College of Art in 2014 with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting), Greathead has twice been a finalist in the National Churchie Art Prize and was a semi-finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize in 2016.
