Claude Collins-Stracensky’s practice is driven by his desire to highlight the light and objects in his surroundings. He believes his works’ “success is in enabling a viewer to leave with an insight or better lit understanding of the dynamics at play in nature, the systems around them.” He is known for building boxes from semi-transparent, tinted glass and Plexiglas, which are either mounted on walls or free standing. These vitrine-like objects often contain found objects from Collins-Stracensky’s environment, like palm fronds or seashells. He has also made installations and paper-based works. Though without formal affiliation, Collins-Tracensky is often considered to be part of a new generation of West Coast artists looking towards Light and Space artists and California Perceptualism.
