Claire Scherzinger builds worlds in her paintings, crafting alien ecosystems that offer metaphors of our own Western lives. The recent series “Exoplanet: Arca-45672,” in particular, has scenes with a distinct palette and lifeforms whose narratives beg to be deciphered. Works like “Baptism before the vacuum cloud storm” shows a ceremony both familiar and curious, rendered in oils and spraypaint.
