As an artist, Mandy Rasch is committed to materials that at first glance could not be more different - steel and glass.
The initially perceived contrast of the nature - steel stands for durability and resilience, glass for transparency and fragility - complements an amalgam that seems to dissolve the boundaries and forfeit them together. They only get their properties after a baptism of fire and only through the heat of 850 degrees Celsius do both materials become more than their sum.
Where the enamel layer envelops the steel like an iridescent, protective skin, a connection is created that is broken through the application of targeted force. One material complements the other and gives it its properties, poetic landscapes emerge in the interplay between fragility and stability, transience and permanence.
