“The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery” (Francis Bacon)
The existential relationship between humans and nature, the interaction between vision and imagination and the aspect of time in relation to human existence are the focal points of my work.
Human interventions on the environment and on landscape, the transformation of places and their identity, can often be perceived only at second glance. It is the ambiguity of vision and perception that I am interested in.
“It takes a lot of courage for a contemporary artist to focus on nature painting. Though it has been and still is constantly present throughout the history of painting, it rarely matches the criterias of contemporary art. But some artists manage to give it the necessary twist that allow the spectator to abstract from the obvious beauty nature offers us, and to get into a deeper contemplation. Alexandra Wolframm’s (1971, Berlin) work captures the subtle edge between vision and imagination, as well as the impossible balance between the human conception of time and nature’s serenity.” (Curator Stefan Pollak/La peau de l´ours – http://www.lapeaudelours.net)
