about Carolin Rechberg
I am an interdisciplinary Fine Artist, born May 29th, 1988 in Starnberg, Germany. I have used art as a means to express and digest life, to arrive in the moment and understand life and myself since an early age. After an International Baccalaureate in Art and Design at the Munich International School I pursued an Individualized BFA from the California College of the Arts, an MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute and an EdM in Art and Art Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. I primarily work in the mediums of Ceramics, Drawing, Installation, Illustration, Painting, Performance, Printmaking, Photography, Poetry, Sculpture and Textiles. I place most value in the multi-sensory experience involved in the process of creating and how these transfer to a way of life.
I have taught Drawing and Painting as a Teaching Assistant in my 1st Master at the San Francisco Art Institute, and Etching, Lithography, Silkscreen and Woodcut during my 2nd Master at Teachers College, while managing the printmaking studios. My work has been exhibited in Solo and Group Exhibitions, in America, Asia and Europe, received awards and has been published in international art books and magazines. I offer Sales and Services of original Artwork and Design, for Private, Commercial and Public Space.
Emoting, speaking out from within when creating.
The Art process is a ritual, a celebration of life, of presence, of nature.
It is a means to arrive in the moment and communicate with the is-ness of being.
The art process and resulting materialized natural and composed mark of presence, reflecting and responding to the evolution of gathered experiences.
Art is a meditation on and off being.
The senses become a portal to ground in the present moment.
Raising one’s conscience, through sensual perception and feeling.
The gesture and observations of color, composition, pattern, rhythm, structure, texture and tone, and ensuing realizations nurturing an approach to existence, I harness to transfer into living.
It is a dance of allowing the work to create itself, and to simply become the guiding vehicle.
Unique in themselves, the artworks become their own entities, signifying information, calling for an individual aesthetic encounter with the environment.
