The texture of paper fascinates the multi-award winning paper artist Kristina Rothe. She reflects on the origin of paper production.
From pure white pulp she creates delicately structured paper surfaces and shapes them into archaic vessels which, emphasised by sensual structures and accents, capture the light.
She finds her great theme in the creation of individual paper urns, which combine ephemeral lightness and transience. Deliberately kept in white, these funeral vessels are intended to symbolise a new beginning. An alternative to conventional funeral culture, characterised by black and heaviness. An attempt to make the farewell dignified and aesthetic.
