I’m interested in the idea of different levels of reality present in the same moment; the ones you can encounter through dreams and rituals.
The ability to shift between those realities is what is fuelling my work; I’m looking for those in-between spaces in a subtle way, working with images from nature, abstraction or the sensibility of basic materials like paper and wood itself. Some images are reminiscent of some old ritual; feeling familiar through collective memory.

DRAWING NEAR
Soledad Senlle Art Foundation:
Opening April 19 2015

Soledad Senlle Art Foundation invites you to the opening of the exhibition Drawing Near, a duo exhibition with work of Barbara Rink and Christina Della Giustina. Although both artists use different mediums, they have both been inspired by trees. Their work can be seen as bridges connecting different worlds: the domestic and the wild, the scientific and the aesthetic, the I and the tree. And both artists emphasize the connection itself, like trees building the joints between the earth and the sky.

Barbara Rink (NL, 1978) makes mostly drawings and paintings, which have been recently processed in installations. Her work focuses mainly on the relationship between human being and its surrounding and especially the nature. Mythology, rituals and dreams play an important role in her work.

At Soledad Senlle Art Foundation Barbara Rink has created Forest Field, a forest with upright trunks of rolled paper. The artist was inspired by mythological stories where the forest is considered as a sanctuary. With the installation Forest Field, Barbara Rink invites us to the forest as a location for mythology and dreams.
