Claudia Bueno has an instinctive affinity for light, and the many languages it can speak. The Venezuelan light artist, who has been working with the medium for over ten years, excels at using light, darkness and shadows to create pieces that resonate with viewers on an intuitive level.” By Sharmilla Ganesan.
“I am a dedicated artist who seeks creative challenges that praise thinking off limits and exploring beyond the comfort zone. Growing up in Venezuela’s ever-unpredictable environment shaped me to live in a constant state of alertness, always scanning my world and attentive to my surroundings, filtering my reality in an effort to capture the poetry that hides silently in its endless bends.”
Claudia is internationally recognized for her distinctive use of technology as the media that animates her work, as well as the intricacy of her compositions and a spatial sense of immersion. Lights, motors, circuits, sound, wind, and video charge her pieces with the life and movement that characterizes her creative language. Detailed drawings, meticulous cutouts, and elaborate structures leave evidence of the intimate engagement between the artist and her work.
The award winning artist has actively exhibited her work in South America, the United States, Europe, and Asia, participating in various group shows, international art fairs, project competitions, and solo shows, obtaining extensive press coverage and broad receptivity.
Residence in Venezuela, Switzerland, Malaysia, and USA have exposed the artist to life-changing adventures that challenged her art, enriched her experience, and molded her creations. Life in each country detonated a series of art pieces that sketched reflections linked to each new surrounding reality.
“I commit my time to inventive endeavors that translate abstract thoughts into matter, turning creative ideas into tangible art that will spark a dialogue with the viewers and potentially generate more ideas. My drive is to communicate, to present fragments of our reality in an innovative, evocative format that will trigger people’s thoughts and echo with their own existence. My mission is to engage visitors in visual excursions that will awaken insight, inspire connections, and leave them intrigued with a new curiosity.”
