Star Trauth is an artist from Miami. Her practice seeks to engage the audience visually with a desire for tactile engagement. Seeking to create new art mediums she uses waste plastic converting it into flat pliable textile. She hand molds and flame sculpts each component, miniature original works in their own right, then melds them into an assemblage. Her work is heavily inspired by music and memory.
Selected solo exhibitions include ‘Art Deco Weekend’ Life is Art, Florida(2015); ‘Sublimate’ Vargas Gallery, Florida(2018). Selected group exhibitions include ‘Atomic Peace’ Haegeumgang Museum, South Korea; ‘Florida Biennial’ Art and Culture Center, Florida(2018).
