Claudia Comte, who was born in 1983 in Morges, Switzerland shows a wide range of influences that range from canonized artists, such as Brancusi and Jean Arp, to popular cartoons, like The Simpsons. She mixes the natural with the artificial, dissolving distinctions between what is considered intellectual and unsophisticated. In an interview with The Brooklyn Rail in 2015, Comte said she mixes classical themes with references to modern art, and then imparts her own voice on the form. Comte values the physical labor required to create her artwork. While in art school, Comte's classmates nicknamed her la tronçonneuse, Miss Chainsaw. The chainsaw has been Comte's tool of choice. However, Comte has asserted that her chosen tool, "has nothing to do with feminism or any other political act." Rather, it is the only tool that manipulates the material in the way she wants.
