About the artwork
As an artist, Jorinde Voigt has always interpreted the world into a series of systems, patterns, and movements which then are turned into beautifully complex lyrical compositions and pictorial spaces. Emotional Spectrum A-Z (26) is drawn from a series of artworks that captures particular emotional states. Each sheet is based on a drawing with the same name from 2012, which Voigt edited with colour accents to highlight various shifts in mood and intensity. A red line marks an emotional scale, which can be located into the present moment.
