Mariko Tsunoka

1985 born in Nagoya,Japan
Lives and works in Nuremberg

Mariko Tsunoka is an artist who understands painting as a space, that stands in relation to its surroundings over the boundaries of the painting ground. For her, this “painting space“ means, on the one hand, a perspective space within the flat image, and on the other, she understnads the image as an object and thus as a spatial objekt. In her works become clear, both her examination of the history of the Western panel painting and her subjective interpretation of abstract painting with the background of the Japanese pictorial tradition .


Albina Rolsing

Albina’s artistic desire is the search for the ways to express strength and vulnerability of the man’s nature, the relation between intimacy and distance, between man’s power and man’s fears. The world of her artworks has a kind of mystery. It is vibrant, silent and deep.
Her way to create artworks is a kind of sensitive enquiry - subtle, bold, blurred, crossed over.
She is always ready to welcome the unexpected. By being unafraid to cross the threshold of traditional fine art processes, she is able to produce thought and emotion provoking art works - in paintings, drawings, in her sculptures and in her photographs.
To see her artworks is always an investigation of the human’s beauty, beauty as an opposite of perfect and for some of the viewers it’s a journey of seeing themselves in works that are not them.
