in: Rosa M Hessling. "Garden of Light III", Rheinisches LandesMuseum Bonn, 2008
Reproducing Rosa M Hessling’s work is almost impossible. Looking from different viewing angles the color in part changes radically; it changes completely, and we see a painting almost as if it were alive reacting to our movements. The artist achieves this technologically with a relatively new generation of pigments having an iridescent play of color, which through refracted light across thin, half-transparent layers, shine, and interference effects depending on the angle of the viewpoint, run through the spectrum between different tonalities.
