About the artist Claudia Starkey

Claudia Starkey is a mixed media artist born and raised in Romania who currently resides in the United States since the early 2000s. Her lifelong project, the surrealistic Fragmented series, explores the intricate workings of memory processing in the human brain. This assemblage features a unique fusion of personal photographs taken by the artist herself, blended with inherited family heirloom images. Her artistic oeuvre seamlessly combines diverse ancestral portraits, childhood memories, contemporary photographs of her own children and friends, natural landscapes, and uncommon travel destinations, spanning several decades from the 1920s to the present day. Starkey has extended her artistic vision to include short films and music videos, utilizing the same approach to create surprising visuals. Her artistic endeavors center on the concept of neurological diversity and how the human brain uniquely interprets external stimuli. She is fascinated by the way in which information is stored and processed, influencing our perspectives and expressions. The interplay of black and white and colorful imagery and the ever-present themes of nature highlights some of her artistic interests. Since 2010, Starkey has significantly expanded her creative endeavors by initiating a non-governmental organization environmental awareness project that employs film and photography as the primary medium. In addition to her multifaceted exploration of memory processing and neurological diversity, Claudia Starkey has made significant contributions to the realm of visual arts through her pioneering work in printing photography. She has developed a unique technique that renders her prints responsive to RGB light, adding an innovative dimension to her already eclectic and vibrant artistic portfolio. Employing this cutting-edge approach, Starkey has expanded the possibilities of visual storytelling within her surrealistic Fragmented series. The integration of RGB light responsiveness in her prints introduces a dynamic element, further enhancing the viewer's engagement with the intricate layers of personal and inherited images. This inventive technique underscores Starkey's commitment to pushing artistic boundaries and exploring new avenues of expression. ​ Furthermore, Starkey has developed a keen interest in the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) technology and its potential impact on our collective humanity's future. She ponders whether AI will merely serve as a mirror reflecting human expression or whether it will surpass it, providing food for thought to all those who contemplate the intersection of art and technology. Will it be a mere tool that augments human creative capacity, or will it transform the very nature of art? These are essential questions that Starkey asks, and her art serves as an invitation to all those who contemplate the intersection of art and technology to engage in these discussions.
