Standing in or opposed to a surface, a space, a ground, on which to communicate and extend my being onto.
My gesture, my mark, my emotion, my thought.
It is the soft caress or sometimes over eager
gushing of emotions, tearing out from inside of myself.
In the discourse of presence, happening right in-front of myself.
The discourse of me represented through colours, form structure, composition, and what unfolds for me to see.
Painting, like the moment of life.
Surrenderance to the structure, the surface, sometimes already having marks on it, coming in, to treasure what inspires me, what I still want to discover to find or what I want people to find inspiration in.
But in the end it is not about the other, it is just about you, about me, and that moment of being free.
Of allowing nothing else, but but mixing and choosing colours, tracing form and textures intuitionally.
The attitude of creating is like the attitude you have toward life
I believe that through expressing digesting and exemplifying oneself through art
One not only discovers material and visuals in process but also ones own interaction throughought the process
From the whole array of emotions to thoughts and reflections and physicality involved in creation, it encourages the acquainting and understanding with oneself. Relation is found to the macro image of oneself in life.
Composition communicated through both hands in dialogue with each other
Structures of right and left like the two hands on a piano
As if conducting the visual space like the sounds from a symphony
The orchestration of a journey over time captured on the same surface moving in time through layers in the same moment but not traveling across moments besides in capture of videography or passing of time
Until the equilibrium or peace
Beginning to end of the piece is reached
Expressing with both halts
Of body, mind, heart and soul
Sound is excerpted
Assure and heighten presence through stimulated awareness of the senses
The canvas on the ground catching the history, the oath of its creation in a parallel language to the painting and performance. Eventually turning into a painting itself through observation accenting, emphasising and cradling its dimensions.
With the intended gesture and mark in art making I want to advocate that the same attention be given to decisions and actions made in daily life.
Through the placement of marks, the layers, the colour line and tone created, is like your canvas, where the atmosphere, the place, the people, most important the nature and infrastructure, the palette which you choose and interact with around you.
cane, canvas, chain, cotton, cement, drywall-patch, mesh, plaster, pvc piping, silk, sinew, sound, house and acrylic paint
With interdisciplinary mediums I accent space to create a greater appreciation of it.
The process is the exploration of concepts of composition, color, line, shape, scale, surface and textures, in different mediums to explore an aesthetic in which the spectator becomes participant. The discovery of materiality provokes exploration and trust in the treasures and experience found in the process and life.
The installation is composed of found and new resources of art and infrastructure.
The material is suspended for the viewer to navigate through and to have an immersive and dynamic experience, triggering somatic and haptic sensibilities, through the interaction with matter, light, space and time. It creates a dimensional environment which addresses ephemerality and sustainability through the medium , the site-specific na...
Presence, I am dealing with my own presence through observing and playing with the chaos and order. The contrast and balance , the depth and the light pushed in interdisciplinary pieces accenting space and as a result harnessing behavioural patters and rhythms informed by the instinct of the senses
Through working in different mediums
I grow an aesthetic archive and language which embodies information and knowledge on the sensuality, emotion and thought/conscience.
Through working in different mediums I challenge my language. Like casting different light in a situational perceive anew and discover the thoughts and challenging my abilities.
Carolin Rechberg fuses sense and thought to arrest moments, to reflect upon the complexity of existence. Through artistic process and interdisciplinary sensibility, she incorporates both space, time and objects to express the material and numinous world, as experienced through consciousness.
She allows intuitive intelligence and intellectual intent to dominate as motive and context in her work. Primarily being a performance artist she creates to craft and grow a heightened awareness of presence, through the mediums of; drawing, dance, installation, painting, painting performance, performance, printmaking, sculpture, textiles and writing.
With the assemblage of new and recycled material, her work is emblematic and an echo addressing the appreciation for the the historic and residual in dialogue with the contemporary moment.
"Creating art is establishing a padagogy to life. Through exploring material and immaterial resources I stimulate my senses. A resulting sensuousness and awareness of internal and external structures allows me to find greater understanding of the world and perceive the correlation between our culture and the natural and man made environment."
