Originally from Strasbourg, a city in eastern France, Claire Sollinger moved to Montreal in 2015. This change of country will be the trigger to express her creativity. Graphic Designer for several years, she loves her job which allows her to simplify people's lives on the Internet. However, she misses working with her hands, freedom and pure creation. In 2018, she decided to affirm her art and explore it further.
Claire Sollinger has always painted, during her years of study in applied art, she discovered the creation of the textile pattern. This experience marked her artistic approach. These creations are often very inspired by patterns. In love with Latin, African and Arab cultures, we can find inspiration from elsewhere in her creations.
Claire likes to paint on paper and in 2015 she discovers the pleasure of painting on canvas. The texture allows her to express her movements more. She prefers acrylic but varies her mediums according to her inspirations.
Her creations are an invitation to travel. An exploration of colour, organic shapes and texture. A balance between movement and the call to contemplation. Claire Sollinger creates suspended time spaces. An inner journey to connect with oneself and others, with poetry and gentleness.
