Miniature collages

Magdalena Hohlweg

" The whole is more than the sum of its parts "

Magdalena Hohlweg sticks inconsequential finds and bizarre micro-waste on paper.

By bringing everyday, sorted material into new contexts, forms emerge that no one knew they had always been there. In the collections, everything seems to be united that is not too perfect or intact.

Minimal reinterpretation gives each fragment a significant place in the work. A small turn to the left or right and here and there an exact stroke with the fineliner are sufficient as a minimal design process for a new unique sculpture.

Biography

In the nineties, the autodidact started working on sculplics in free construction technology in her own ceramic studio.

In 2000, she gave up her artistic work with ceramics and ran her own computer store until 2007.

Finally, in 2008 she made a comeback in the art world with the unusual miniature collages. Since then, as a freelance artist, she has constantly developed new and surprising perspectives on the most trivial remnants and remnants of everyday life.

Her remarkable miniature collages of the [un] apparent worlds have already been honoured several times with audience awards at various group exhibitions in Germany. In 2018, Magdalena Hohlweg was nominated for the Art Prize of the city of Fürstenwalde.

After 10 years of residence and successful work in Hamburg, the artist now lives and works in Bad Pyrmont, Weserbergland.

Her studio there with an attached exhibition can be visited by appointment.

 

Magdalena Hohlweg

Any originally inconsequential element becomes indispensable in the fragile habitats for tiny bird shapes or bizarre insects.

Inspired by scientific works, however, the miniature collages are not pure collections of objects, but fragile microcosms with a restrained message.

The most profane remnants are assigned an artistic potential by looking at them from a different perspective. A dry springweed seed capsule can unexpectedly maintain a complex character with a confident charisma and convincing vibrancy.
