ARTIST STATEMENT

Work in progress

Horizontal

I do not know why the format of the drawing I make is always horizontal. It is like the most natural feeling and I just let it flow. It is my own horizon where I can reach the unknown and the new. Symbolically the horizontal axis represents the path from birth to death, beginning to end, a linear time. It is standing for the dual nature of the human existence as evidenced by our symmetrical shapes – left and right, male and female, good and bad.

Then suddenly I finished the drawing.

Vertical

The print which follows the drawing is always vertical, balancing everything, being absolutely complete. Like the vertical axis which represents the body and our upright position, unique in the animal kingdom. Symbolic of our path, it is also representing our dual nature which embodies the spiritual and the temporal. Like a work of art.

Ausstellungsansicht FEMALE - lebt und arbeitet in Wien 2019

Dem von dominierender Vertikalität geprägten Siebdruck Sundogs (2019) von Zhanina Marinova gehen Zeichnungen voraus, welche die Künstlerin in der Horizontalen anlegt. Der Wechsel des Mediums bedingt auch den Wechsel der Ausrichtung und befragt so die Positionierung der Künstlerin, wie auch der Betrachtenden gegenüber der jeweiligen Arbeit.
