Rita Daubländer has been working as a visual artist since 2007, after having worked in textile arts and crafts with fabric for around 15 years. More freedom and possibilities of materials drew her to painting. Baking boards, floorboards, found objects, baking paper were her preferred painting surfaces in the early days.
The color scheme of her current work is rather monochromatic. Stories are often "told" by their surroundings: crumbling walls, barren rooms and the aesthetic beauty of decay. - Traces of transience.
The artist uses marble dust, pigments, dust from her own house, ash, roofing varnish, plaster and other anti-art materials. In her works she strives for a kind of archaic expression. The process of creating the image, such as lines, tears, seams, injuries, is preserved and documents the living. Perhaps this expresses her unconscious striving to create a balance for too much order, cleanliness and anonymity in today's society.
