ALEXANDRA GEYERMANN

With my artwork I like to tell tales, go on a journey with my engraving wheel and experience adventures with my mind and with my eyes.

Many of my objects are inspired by poems or stories about almost forgotten women. I like to portray their feminine perspective and struggle with themselves and their environment. Always looking for the essentials, for what the respective woman “really” is, I take her life apart into individual fragments. Those pieces create once again a coherent image – they are illustrations on glass.

My objects are relief cut and intaglio engraved, often combining both techniques by engraving on both the front and back of the glass. With that I achieve a special depth in the glass, new dimensions and the depictions gain in dense liveliness. This also will reveal loopholes and details, which the viewer will only see on closer inspection.

In many of my works I use found objects such as metal or wood and lately with pleasure ancient photographs. In this way I make the transience visible. The lost things are justified again and break up the transparency, the clarity of the glass. They become part of a new story, but also tell their own tale.
