Born in Paris, France, Ara Starck is a non-conformist, multi-disciplinary storyteller. Inspired by the idea of transcendence, both literally and figuratively, Ara sees her focus on large scale painting installations as a driving force in her work.

Ara’s ambition is to create works of encounters. Her creations are often a complex game in which central figures move in a phantasmagorical world as an invitation to dream. Her work welcomes viewers into a diagonal world where optical distortions and metamorphosis reveal a richness of ghostly movements.
