Claudia Samper


Architect by education, I detached myself from the design field over the years diving into the world of fine arts.


The condition of being human reverberates in my paintings.  The emotional content in the characters I depict reveals their soul. Kindness, joy, ambiguities, hopes, disappointments, and perceptions, are all embedded in my paintings, while colors, lines, shapes, and composition work together to express the definite as well as the uncertain.


My goal is to create a space to encourage a dialogue between the viewer and my work. I look for this interaction, to be able to trigger a feeling, a thought or a wonder. I make pieces that, as life itself, are not fully developed. There's always something waiting to be completed, something to be discovered. I let this to the viewer, to interact with each painting and to have its own personal dialogue with it. 


I have participated in many solo and juried group exhibitions around the Washington area and the United States. Among others: Embassy of Argentina, Gallery 10,  La Luna Gallery, and the Woman’s National Democratic Club in Washington, DC,  Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Arts, TX, The Von Liebig Art Center, FL, William Paterson University, NJ, Hudson Gallery, OH, and Reston Art Gallery, and The Torpedo Factory in VA.


My work has been published in the books: “International Contemporary Masters Volume VI” (p.317) and “Artist Portfolio Magazine- Issue 11” (p.79). It is also part of private collections in Spain, Argentina and the United States.
