Artist Statement →
Martina Stock's artistic medium is serigraphy. The bases of her silkscreens are self-taken photos, which she combines in a digital process. The original is dissolved and a new context of reality and her fiction emerges - captured in her multi-layered pictorial worlds implemented with silkscreen. The manual positioning of the screen on the canvas, the painterly squeegee guidance through the screen and the sensitivity for colour, create unique, non-reproducible works. Besides her visual art, she is also a harpist. She performs solo or realizes audiovisual performances in Europe as well as in Asia in the form of a multimedia installation with screen printing, harp and an intermediate component. A new interpretation of silkscreen and harp. To combine “analog traditional with digital practice“ is the basic of these projects. The concept also stimulates reflection on the question of what perception results from a combination of image and sound.
