For many artists, geometry is their way of seeing the world.
It is definitely true for artist Claudia Mosele, who bases her
drawings on geometrical forms with cohesive style, spirit, and
intelligence. Dating from as far back as prehistoric cave drawings,
artists around the world have used geometry to express important
ideas, and specifically for this artist, geometrical forms
represent something that is part of all of us, a mysterious and
illusive concept that can be seen in all elements of nature
including plants, trees, stones, and even our own human bodies. It
is notable that her drawings such as Waterfall and Eye in the
Sky are reminiscent of Art Deco, a style typically associated with
the celebration of the artificial, technological, and innovative,
yet she uses it to bring order and symmetry to references of
nature. While deftly balancing abstract and figurative impulses,
these pieces experiment with many variations of subtle color, very
tonal and suggestive of light.
Following an education in Switzerland, Mosele served an
apprenticeship in an architectural firm where she honed her skills
in drawing construction blueprints and learned how to build houses.
While working with a graphic computer program, she realized that
this would be her artistic medium of choice.
