MARION FINK GERMANY, b 1987

They had built their own worlds to house their fleeting emotions.
She herself created the lens through which she experienced the entirety of her life.
Every day she forced her reality to fit the model of the divided self.
The seedlings she had nurtured would turn entire worlds upside down.
She was that, which remained, when she removed all the things, that she was not.
His own carefully orchestrated illusion was a comfort for his tired eyes.
She tried to grasp the meaning of a tree swaying in the wind.
He allowed his thoughts to drift upon the ocean of life.
She was ready to dig deep into the mine of her own soul.
Every act he took sprang from the hidden seeds of his thoughts.
She tried to identify her role in the transient nature of all things.
All he could reach, was a new level of assumption.
They themselves had shaped the character of their shared experience.
The solid matter she encountered, had been nothing more than a persistent illusion.
Her once stable world had dissolved into a liquid dream.
He was a solid explorer in a fluid world.
The phenomenons he witnessed were determined by his fears and desires.
She thoughtlessly transformed her environment, her environment thoughtfully transformed her.
The Wave
Neither certainty nor truth could rearrange their convictions.

BIOGRAPHY

Potsdam and Berlin-based artist Marion Fink is known for her life-sized, colorful monotypes depicting young people in various states of connection and disconnection to the elements of the world around them. Her layered works probe the spheres of consciousness we create for ourselves in our own private worlds, an investigation that is surely in step with the personally curated environments many of us inhabit in today’s virtual, online culture. As part of a generation that was raised in the digital age, she has experienced, firsthand, the paradox of seemingly limitless access to information along with increasingly fragmented, competing perspectives, exacerbated by the harsh scrutiny of social media. The resulting feelings of isolation and dissociation from genuine, physical interactions form the foundation for Fink’s surreal portraits of young people, each living in their own parallel reality.
