But Rochelmeyer conducts this fiddly job with maximum self discipline. And so I perceive even what confuses as a moment of happiness. The realm of freedom only begins on the other side of the forces of necessity. The magic spell that gains access here is: Space is the place.” “Constructivism meets Futurism and latest architecture and merges into a new modern pictorial language.” Text by: Christoph Tannert, artistic director, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin Catalogue "Mixed", Märkisches Museum Witten “One might refer to Tanja Rochelmeyer´s paintings as visions of spaces. They contain ciphers of a modernist architectural vocabulary in the shape of angular, dynamic lines in space. The starkly two-dimensional effect of the monochrome areas, which overlap and penetrate each other on several levels, is set off by rudiments of perspective alignment that lead us optically into the depth. These are islands of illusionism…” “Tanja Rochelmeyer creates labyrinthine, absurd configurations of splintered spaces, bringing with them echoes of the multiperspectivity of a cubist image concept.” Text by: Dr. Marc Wellmann, artistic director, Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin Catalogue "Tanja Rochelmeyer", 2014, "Splinters of Space"
