Artist Spotlight | Claudia Meyer
While metaphysics teaches us to believe in existence and nothingness, Claudia Meyer’s art shows us matter and light. The essence of the artist’s creations therefore consists of flows and energy. In order to unite the later, her creative inspiration draws upon all materials, including those produced by nature, and those invented by man. This expresses a great sense of freedom. The artwork guides and enables us to exist with the artist. The generous strokes and expressive lines show us that the material is full of this luminous and translucent vacuum. Movement emerges from the immobile forms. These spirals, these character that resemble writing are imperceptible yet powerfully suggestive. They remind us of ancient manuscripts. Immanent and material, Claudia’s creations point to the transcendent. This transcendence that is so close to us is one of emotion and sensitivity. At the heart of the temporal, her art confronts us with the universe and puts man back into a living world. It lights up the material as if to say that what is real is our language and that the artist is there to help us see it. It speaks to us of air, water and fire. In this sense, art is an opening, a mirror or a dialogue, which is accessible for everyone.
Nature, light and human-made materials are my unlimited sources of inspiration. More than often I deliberately proceed to redefine and re-establish harmonious and innovative dialogue between them. I extract, suggest and eventually emphasize underlying strength or feel, and re-associate and re-embed them through a revisited, abstract and new open-minded three-dimensional approach. Transversality became my tool to redefining invisible boundaries and mingling of energy and flows. More than often I am laying the ground for a subliminal uplifting dialog connecting to energy and to being in the moment. I like my work to be a source for inspiration, reflection and to be a visual and sensorial experience through colors, transparencies, lights, textures, materials and shapes. I do not intend to shock, provoke or being negative. On the contrary.
