Claude Closky's work takes a variety of forms and incorporates almost all the means and ways of expression available to this modern dabbler: collage on paper, video encrustation, folding paper, sound recording, drawings, and silkscreen prints, etc. Closky, it seems, never aims for gratuitous spectacular effects. Therefore, his interventions generally pass unnoticed, like the random organization of information in certain of his works. As critic Frédéric Paul puts it, “The artist is always working and if he is not working, he is 'training.'“ Claude Closky was born in France in 1963 and today lives and works in Paris.
