Marion Jungeblut was born in 1964 in Germany. She studied sculpture with Prof. Jürgen Weber at the Institut Freies Formen and architecture at the TU Braunschweig. She also attended classes in Mathematics and Theoretic Physics. After sojourns in Los Angeles where she worked at SOM´s and participated in installations for the MOMA S.F., she studied art and Media Sciences at the HBK Braunschweig. She maintains two studios in Braunschweig and Spain.
Marion Jungeblut´s artistic expression gives evidence of a unique language with great variety. She works with grand spaces of oil-colour and acrylic layers while making also use of different media such as silkscreens and c-prints of bodies and landscapes. Additionally, she produces hovering acrylic sculpture or rather acrylic-glass-installations whose visionary groupings, perfections in form and their futuristically reflecting surfaces cast a spell over their viewers. In this context the artist understands her paintings as a catalyst, which does not change but rather preserves its own truth, insofar as it prevents a complete comprehension of its totality. In the artist´s work, a deep blue colour plays a decisive role, which the art curator Beate Engelhorn described so well with her own words: “…the dominant colour of this world is a deep blue. (…) All these physical and psychological events and experiences are mirrored in Marion Jungeblut´s art and let us participate in a feeling of weightlessness and depth. “the water is where I come from, the water is where I fly, the water is where I drown, the water is where I die“ is the title of her Wave Paintings. One will find it difficult to escape the magic of the water and the blue of these paintings and sculpture.
Her newest series metal mirroring melting objects however, is less concerned with colour but with form: the subject matter focuses on the deconstruction of the objects with regard to our aesthetic perception and from our conventional perspective as well as on the dissolution of form in their conceptual consistence. The object is distorted by corrosion and reflections – one could almost say by liquefaction – but on the other hand it is reconstructed by means of new word contexts or anagrams.
Marion Jungeblut is a professional artist with many solo and group exhibitions. She is represented by LDXArtodrome Gallery internationally.
