Oskar Rink is a German artist known for her distinctive visual imagery, whether it comes to her paintings or her alluring installations.
The artist was born in Leipzig in 1980. Rink obtained a diploma in pattern making and illustration at the l’Ecole Supérieure des Arts et techniques de la Mode , Munich, Germany. She also completed Master Degree at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art / Contemporary Art Department, contributed to the differentiation of her individual perception of art.
Rink has acquired the specific technique of transferring two-dimensional objects into a three-dimensional volume in her studies of Pattern and Design. Still developing them further, she consequently accesses more and more dimensions of representations. Although working on sculptures, Rink is also showing drawings and paintings acquiring geometric forms.
Growing up in her father’s studio, from early onwards she learnt the basic elements of painting. As a fashion designer, illustrator and cook, the London based artist resigned from following in the footsteps of her father and mentor in order to develop her own language. The artist subordinates her latest three dimensional works completely on the haptic aspects of engineering and building. From paper, cardboard and thin wooden sticks, she forms fragile worlds, paper fragments of pictures, which are illustrated surfaces and delicate objects at the same time.
