The human body is a fascinating and inspiring source for many works of Albina’s art.

Her abstracted figurative paintings stem from a distinct sense of dynamic, inner movement and calmness.Therefore, drawings on paper and in wax, created as a series Naked, clearly reveals how well the artist understands human subtleness.

Most of Albina’s artworks show airiness, lightness and permeability. But these signature features are especially omnipresent in her series Naked. Her figurative artworks are neither epic nor ideal. Everything about them is poetic.To put it in Albina’s own words: “Life is motion, breathing and permeability. That keep us flexible, receptive and open to sensations and insights. Openness enables strength, but also vulnerability. Both of them are often intimately connected with each other and form an important part in the process of becoming mature.“ 

In several of her drawings Albina Rolsing refers to classic models of the Renaissance, however at the same time she counteracts the insatiable urge for ideal proportions.

„Real beauty can finally and only be found in imperfection“, so the artist’s understanding of the beauty’s nature.

The thorough studies of human existence and the impact of Egon Schiele’s art manifested Albina Rolsing’s expressive, vibrant and by no means limiting line. This line has the dominant expressiveness in many of her works. Her silhouettes, which appear as if from a dream, are not pressed into a tight corset by this line. Rather, the drawing helps the evolving creatures to free themselves from the physical to the abstract and pave their way to permeability, enabling them to penetrate into subconscious layers of the mind. Conversely, however, this way, deeply rooted meanings come to the surface. There is a constant exchange between the inner life and the outer appearance in Rolsing’s works.

Especially, the intensive examination of the historic and art milieu of Vienna in the 19th and 20th century sustainably marks Rolsing’s artistic orientation. Strength, self-realization and the human longing for intimate connection with others are exactly the central themes in her art.
