    Vibrational Strings

    Vibrational Strings is the new body of work of German multimedia artist Annina Roescheisen. An ongoing selection of mixed media and ink paintings, the Vibrational Strings series comprises 10 works, presented for the first time for the artist first solo exhibition at Boogie Wall Gallery, London.

     

    In Vibrational Strings, both object and subject of it, as its interactions with and reactions to its environment materialize in it. Roescheisen's hand becomes the tool for her emotions as they transpire through it and into the work. Seemingly and subconsciously leading her, it unintentionally traverses, grazes, scrapes, caresses, scratches the canvas in a process of  accumulation of several such sessions, undergone over the course of over two months.

     

    Vibrant textures

     

    The physical layering comes to mirror the emotional layers, the cumulated waves, that it expresses.

     

    Roescheisen alternates paint, minerals, dripping ink, onto the aluminum canvas with often up to 8 or 9 layers to add texture. Each color, meticulously and circumstantially mixed by the artist herself, inherits an emotional meaning, or, as the artist explored in her Bridging Grey performative video work (2017—2019), a duality of meanings that add onto the textural tension of the work.

    Pictural & Emotional Layers

    Across each layer, using a feather and ink, Roescheisen draws thousands of fine, floating lines, each uniquely positioned, emitting and oscillating with every flicker of her emotions. These vibrations, the visual translation of the latter, constitute Roescheisen’s visual language. On the canvas, they form a visual symphony – akin to notes on a musical score, and where the artist is at once the composer and the conductor. Performed in front of the viewer, each painting acquires its own resonance. A quantum field filled with magnetic waves, each canvas achieves its own, inherent frequency, emitted onto the viewer and perceived in its own unique way, if at all, by him.

     

    Roescheisen erects a bridge to ignite our communication with the imperceptible, evoking new senses, new perceptions. The layers cannot be seen; the sounds cannot be heard; the magnetic waves cannot be touched; yet, like emotions, they can be sensed, and they can be felt.

  • Reoscheisen's paintings materialize the countless vibrations that constitute the invisible world and that come to define our perception of ourselves and of others.

    This new body of work moves further and deeper into the waves that extend from within and into the outer world, in turn affecting others. Her philosophical approach, already tinged with a thirst for experimentation, extends to the fields of music and quantum physics.

    Just as sound and magnetic waves have been conceptualized, infinitesimally yet unmeasurably impactful throughout our existence, the artist shares her theory of emotional waves, akin to the latter, whereby individuals act as emitting and receiving poles, sensitive to various, unique frequencies and fields that ultimately connect us to one another. Physicality expands as a central part of her creative process.
