About Tina K

1944, Salzburg, AustriaLived ve years in Paris, one year in Tokyo, and since 1975 has spent most of her time in Ibiza with occasional visits to Berlin. Since the 90s she experiments assembling objets trouves and developed her concept of the Art of Recycling: Assemblages in relief, mosaics of found pieces just as man and nature left them for her. Her dependence on found materials inspires a nonlinear process of creation, whose outcome remains unforseeable till the very last. Her selection of materials comprises mainly broken glass, ceramics, mother of pearl, wood, and synthetic materials, interspersed with precious gems or bizarre figurines which acquire a new and often ironic meaning in the different context.
