Rosalinde (NL 2014) graduated at the Sandberg in 2016 where she followed the temporary masters ‘Curemaster’. This master programme focussed mainly on mental & physical health.
Rosalinde is fascinated by how our brain operates and brings us beliefs, thoughts and emotion that shape our inner- and external experience of our reality. How conscious or unconscious are these thoughts and emotions? Is our brain programmed by our external environment? Do we have ‘free will” at all? How malleable are we? And which methods exist to influence our state of mind?
At this moment Rosalinde works a lot with black dots, circles and/or drops (ink, acryl, medium and liquid glass). When she has an impuls of inspiration she just sits down and starts. The process is almost like a meditation. Her thoughts are not silent during these processes. “What are you doing?” “This does not make any sense?” “Why are you wasting your time with this?” These questions arise very often in her mind. She tries not to give them attention and just keeps on going with making the work. And then somewhere, somehow the work feels like completed because it feels ‘right’. That doesn’t mean that her aesthetic eye always agrees with her feeling.
This being said, it places her work within the context of the “Intuitive art”. Intuitive art is a spiritual, connected art process that allows the art to lead the way as images form through the choice of media. Intuitive art is a process of creating art using an inner awareness that is heart centered and does not rely on analysis or head based questions.
