Star Trauth is a an experimental fiber artist that often creates new processes to complete the vision of her pieces. Her art has been in over fifty exhibitions in under five years; including Miami Art Week, Yoko Ono’s Arising, and The Florence Biennale.
Star prefers to work immersed in music to keep the purity of her vision, Trauth is meticulous when it comes to sensory engagement. She will often limit sight, sound, even diet, while engaging her pieces. Each piece is inspired by a personal experience. Her art practice draws on the ideas of abstraction, minimalism, Dadaism, the concept of ikigai, anti-consumerism, and a dedication to legacy.
Star’s art has been described as tribal and innovative, art you want to touch but shouldn’t. Her process melds ancient techniques with signature innovations. She prefers to use vintage, found, and new fibers in unison to form her creations. The inspiration comes from memory. Music purifies it. In music she sees color and original techniques unfurl. Star says, “I am creating my imagination and inviting you on the journey.”
Star lives with her husband and daughter, who are often her muses, in Miami, Florida.
