CLAUDIA MEYER " la lumière "
Claudia Meyer (Swiss, b. 1961) and artist and visual art creator is from Lucerne, a lakeside town with medieval roots high in the mountains of Switzerland. She expresses her creativity through three distinct and converging fields, art, industry, and nature. Her parents were highly integral in her development, as they were key figures in fostering her relationship with nature and being environmentally friendly for example the Plexiglas that Meyer employs is also from recycled material.
Early on, Meyer trained as a graphic designer at Hochschule für Gestaltung and Kunst in Luzern, and spent a year in Stuttgart, Germany where she made the acquaintance of Anton Stankowski, the grand master of the German design with whom she had the opportunity to work with as a graphic artist. Later on, she moved to New York City where she acquired a silk-screen printing major and received several prizes while studying fabric design and modern technologie at the Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York.
Since then Meyer has been focusing full time on creating contemporary art using technology, mixed media materials and nature as her main source of inspiration.
For her, creating is about stimulating new ideas and finding ways to articulate them. This is the reason why Meyer is often inspired by architecture, science, design, technology, music, film, photography, poetry and nature. She embraces each of these sources of inspiration as art forms. This process allows her to pull out of conformity while naturally remaining close to the fundamentals of organic flow.
Claudia Meyer’s unique and prolific artwork is exhibited in carefully selected art galleries, public and private institutions, corporate and private collections and art fairs all over the world, as well as being commissioned for public and private venues in Aspen, Belgium, London, New York, Chicago, Dubai, Japan, and St Tropez. Her recent solo exhibition titled “Immersion,” was presented by Homeira Goldstein and TIME4ART, at the Manhattan Beach Art Center, California, the United States.
