Tina Frausin visual art

 

Different material is and has always been my passion. I once started out with painting, then discovered clay and sculpture. After that I trained five years in Denmark to become an glass-artist, but nowadays my artistic focus lies on the possibilities and expressions of materials in a wider definition.


I work both with unique sculptures and installations as well as commissions for public spaces. My work is often tactile, sculptures and images that invites to be experienced with all  senses. The  starting point is often my interest in crafts and handicrafts that are inserted in a new context and viewed upon from a different perspective.


I think that in today’s busy society art is needed as a counterpoint to entrepreneurship, consumption, capitalism, rationalism and efficiency. From this point of view grows my desire to create art, mythical objects that speaks to the young at heart and portrays a different reality through happines and joy. Playful, life-affirming shapes and bright colours will be the tools I use for telling my story.


The expression is free and playful with associations and surprises. I want people to feel happy when they experience my work.
