Claudia Meyer is Swiss Artist and visual Art creator who express her creativity through two distinct and over-crossing visual Art fields. One being Contemporary Fine Art and the other being “Industrial” Art inspired by new realism. Early on, Claudia Meyer trained as a graphic designer at Hochschule für Gestltung and Kunst in Luzern, and spent a year in Stuttgart, Germany where she worked as a graphic artist and made the acquaintance of Anton Stankowski, the grand master of German design, in whose studio she
was able to work. Later, she moved to New York City where she acquired a silk-screen printing major and received several prizes while studying fabric design and modern technologies at the Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York. Since then she has been focusing full time on creating contemporary art using technology, mixed media materials and nature as her main source of inspiration.
“Nature and human made elements are my unlimited sources inspiration. More than often I deliberately proceed to establish a harmonious dialogue in between them. I then extract, suggest and eventually emphasize underlying elements, and re-associate them within a different perspective. Through a three-dimensional approach and numerous supports. Transversality become my tool to re-defining invisibles boundaries of energy and flows. In other words, what I am trying to convey and accomplish is a sense of subliminal uplifting dialog and or a source for inspiration and reflection through colors, transparencies, lights, textures, materials and shapes."

"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 characters 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."
