In the beginning, the series “Tragwerk 1/2/3” was planned as a “frame in frame” concept which got modified through the creative process.
Overgrown architectural appearing elements are composing a technical frame in which the transparent and floristic part of the work has space to affect the viewer`s attention. A surrealistic nature that needs non-organic material as their natural habitat.
The title “Tragwerk” is a german word for “supporting structure” (architectural) which should, on one hand, symbolize the heaviness of the technical construct in contrast to the lightness the image gets by a luminous blue sky. On the other hand the construct has the function to carry the flowers, to give them a space to exist.
Julia Kobel was born in Stuttgart and moved to Mannheim for her Design studies where she is currently finishing her Bachelor of Arts.
In 2017 Julia found her passion for 3D Design. Since then she is experimenting with dynamic and organic forms as well as exploring a world consisting of technic and nature.
Hard to miss is her preference for transparent materials which you can find in nearly every artwork. Once she described her fascination with the words “I love how light is breaking through transparent materials and that it can function similar to a mirror. You can see through, you can see yourself but, you can’t reach physically behind it – only with your eye”.
