In order to visualize her complex experimental set-ups, Jorinde Voigt employs primarily the medium of drawing, using it to create her own realities and her own thought models. Her mainly large-format compositions cannot be unequivocally categorized as figurative or abstract pictures, moreover, what appears at first to be a systematic conception seems always to expand into the gesticular. Deploying a method that she has gradually developed over the past eight years, the artist tries to turn experiences, thoughts, conceptualizations or also associations derived from music, literature or philosophy into visible form and to site them in a system representing movements and spatio-temporal contexts. The subject material involved in her work is highly subjective, revolving more around forms of perception and processes of apprehending than around the objects as such. Voigts works unfold their particular appeal through their dovetailing of the meticulous and the impulsive, the orderly and the chaotic, the scientific and the poetic. Linear and hand-written elements have, for some years, been augmented by an increasing number of coloured surfaces made of a variety of materials. And now, in addition, Voigt is transposing her compositions into the sculptural sphere.
