To paint 

is like a ritual for me.

It is the laying bare of myself.

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. 

Nothing purer, this being my kind of meditation. 

Like life it...

My aesthetic an accent to the language in languages 

That we speak 

The visual longing to be as engaging 

And sensually stimulating as the landscape that we meet

October 12, 2016

my whole body is the tool

the use of space on a surface, in a space

equates to the importance of using oneself in space.

realising fundamentals such as composition, perspective, texture will give one the sensibility to apply that knowledge to areas of life and living 

teaching the art of creation teaches the art of presence

an interdisciplinary approach and use of material to express ideas, sentiments or to process experience, is important and symbiotic to the interdisciplinary structure of life

i believe that the individual and community is the artwork constructed out of the process

like an artwork the human being undergoes process of creation and destruction to become a rendered piece or living artwork

i love to explore with material from different sectors of our infrastructure, inventing new forms to realise presence giving me the experiences my senses are after

i like to reapropriate matter for the experience

weather it be from construction, food, 

key for me is the experience

feeling

i believe...

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.

I create like a performance artist 

I mark like an expressionist 

I draft like a surrealist 

I shade like a cubist 

I shape space like an architect

I use artwork as sculpture 

And space like an installation 

I paint light and shadow 

I pushing and pulling dimension 

Every mark needing to be touched either by attention and or mark

To acknowledge, emphasise its presence

From the floor 

To the wall 

To the floor 

To the wall

Painting

Left and right

Black and white 

Ying and yang 

Left hand right hand

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 

During mark 

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. 

February 1, 2016

My artwork is an aesthetic representation of my experience, explored and reflected through the empiricism probing through the encounter at the existentialism of life and nature.

Installation, Performance

dimensions site-specific

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.

It is all about the presentation

The space in between 

How the works and the environment 

Breathe, interweave to informed states of experience

Where you annunciate the geography through placing your work in a mannerism to accent each other and set balance yet tension between the parts assembling the presence.

April 1, 2015

In all mediums I discover that it is for me about the approach

The state that I am in

Every time I call myself to root to breath to let feeling guide my creativity

Analysing, divesting, provoking Thinking, through the exposure of experience to my senses 

Therefore the projects and works which not only challenge my hand  but my body, my mind, 

Word by word falling in consciousness while creating with an awareness of being and seeing (the productivity we could live and be free in)

I have always created to music and soundscapes and realise that I like address my art in terms of tone colour, rhythm, contrast, textures and harmony. 

My pieces are different melodies by the same composer

Reiterating growing evolving themes 

Currents of introspection running through my life

Create to Exist

 

Breathing.

I create to exist.

To give and to sustain life.

Allowing my senses to feel.

Letting life close to grow.

Being itself and the act of creation, carrying the promise of evolution and decay through energetic exchange of existence.

I recognize and seek comfort in the tangibility of the creative process.

It gives purpose and reassurance through the aesthetic trail of knowledge connecting me to remnants of our past, threaded into our present and future.

The currents created from the consciousness of nature and networks of our ancestors woven to inform and nourish parallelities of existence and artistic expression.

I accent marks, spills and stains, traces, patterns left by culture, the geography and by my presence over time in space.

Choosing to create or extract a vision I see in sediments and textures of gathered layers of mixed media to express the material and in-material world.

I absorb, resonate and ground through embracing interdisciplinary sensibilities, to encourag...

    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."
