Meet Christina Seibold Vice Chairwoman of Artists for Freedom located in Frankfurt/Main, Germany
BUILDING BRIDGES, FACILITATING NEW PERSPECTIVES
Intimately in concert with her own emotions, the graphic artist Christina Seibold perceives her role as an intermediary between haptical sensuousness and optical pleasure. Born in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) on the 30th of March in 1966, she illustrates, by virtue of her multifaceted art prints, the animated realities endemic to both of these spheres.
Together with her, the viewer embarks upon a literally touching voyage, witnessing how these realities synaesthetically articulate themselves anew within her.
Resplendent with expressive power, these creations recite passages from a tangible world of forms that Christina Seibold dismantles and reshapes in an extraordinarily subtle fashion. Such perceptible contours and forms capture the eyes of the observers, and they soon find themselves immersed in the sheer depths of these energetic works. With each fathom of new depth, they reveal a fantastic inner world inhabited by dynamic forces.
For much more than a decade, Christina Seibold allows her digital graphics to assume their respective forms. Indeed, she regards this method as the ideal means of portraying the visual poetry that lends so much soul to spaces. Their density and their abundance of expression are fascinating, but they make neither an excessive nor an adversely intrusive impression.
Christina Seibold is a co-founder of the artist group ArSenu. In cooperation with jewelry designers and sculptors, she developed an interdisciplinary project in which art prints, each corresponding to a particular piece of jewelry (beginning with the work “Expression”), were created. This artistic project was honored by the PININFARINA ADVANCEMENT PRIZE.
The reception within professional circles as well as among the general public was very enthusiastic.
Christina Seibold is one of the Founders and the Vice Chairwoman of Artists for Freedom a global art alliance.
