Sonngard Marcks

Sonngard Marcks sees the main motif of her artistic work in preservation. With her unique faiences, she wants to transform the dimension of loss in nature into a sensibly perceptible experience. She focuses on the category of beauty as a prerequisite for empathy. The artist is fascinated by what initially seems inconspicuous. During the observation process, one discovers new aspects, detects cross connections and one’s view becomes more comprehensive. When sketching, one’s gaze seeks the essentials first, i.e. the line that points in the direction of growth. Graphic methods suggest themselves, pure black and white, “sketching” with scissors, and translating the results into the ceramic material. “Encounter with a theme’s contents always sparks further interest in me. Time becomes irrelevant. The cycle of observation and newness never ends.”
