Evie Star, is a trans non binary, queer, fluid, and a gndrfckr from Dublin, Ireland. They have lived in London, Munich, and Copenhagen, and NYC/Upstate NY since 1988.
I find inspiration in many places, my subconscious mind, the wilderness, the wasteland and precious spaces in urban environs, all of which have influenced my creative style and process. I create art because I like to challenge myself, create internal change, focus on liberation and self expression and as a self ritual healing practice. I specialize in Photography, drawing, painting, installations, performance art and experimental music. I focus on Liberation of self expression. I also enjoy working with other artists in collaboration, alliance, partnership and combination, because you just never know what you might discover, in oneself and in another. Without art in my life I am miserable.
My art style is influenced by Dadaism, Surrealism, and the ever wondrous digital mediums of zeros and ones. I am motivated by other artists that push the boundaries of self expression and freedom of expression in all mediums. I've been creating art for 50+ years. One artist that I extol is Marcel Duchamp and I find their work to be the true essence of rebellion and push against “normalcy”, an insight into “anti-art”! I like to connect with the art community by meeting and talking to receptive artists. My work has shown and performed at Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin, Winetavern Gallery, Dublin, The Gap Store, London, LGBTQ Center, Kingston, NY and The Beverly Gallery, Kingston, NY. Evie Star has had their work published in “The Handstand”, “The Irish Times”, “The Sunday Independent”, and “Rolling Stone”.
When people see my work, I hope they experience a heightened sense of self, thoughts unthinkable, sights unseeable, sounds unhearable, and feelings unfelt.
