The editions of the internationally renowned artist
If you don't know the name yet, you should remember it - because Jorinde Voigt (1977, Frankfurt) is considered one of the most sought-after artists in the international art scene, at least since her participation in the Biennale di Venezia in 2011.
Her works are represented in the most renowned museum collections, such as New York's Museum of Modern Art, the Kunsthaus Zürich, Bonn's Bundeskunsthalle, Munich's Pinakothek der Moderne, and Paris's Centre Pompidou.
Voigt lives and works in Berlin. She is currently a professor at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg. She completed her own artistic training at two world-renowned institutions, London's Royal College of Art and Berlin's Universität der Künste; she graduated there with Katharina Sieverding.
The artist also has an academic background. She studied philosophy and literature, among other subjects, at the University of Göttingen and the Free University of Berlin. One senses the connection of the academic and the artistic in her works.
Her works are mostly complex, idiosyncratic compositions. In them, Voigt often refers to the relation between the inner and the outer, for example to the question of how inner processes, such as memories or emotions, are related to the outer world. She also frequently works with musical, philosophical or literary models, which she takes as the starting point for a work. For example, Voigt has created works with reference to Plato or Goethe.
The artist says of her work: "My work is like music. You can enjoy it without being able to read the score."
The artistic techniques Voigt uses in her limited editions are also interesting. She often incorporates the process of collage, cuts out sections of her paintings, or integrates real gold leaf in the manner of a medieval book illustrator.
Jorinde Voigt's editions are rare and coveted collector's items among art connoisseurs. We can absolutely recommend the artist!
