Monika Ruschke – Painter, sculptor

“The substance is invisible.”

Monika is a painter and sculptor, inspired by metaphysics and vortex-based maths. Her paintings and sculptures can be thought of as space–spirit – as a world beyond the physical. Her aim is to inspire the observer to new viewpoints, to feel with the heart.

As a child she had already begun drawing, painting and delving into little physics  projects, wondering what was beyond the physical appearance. Her curiosity and ongoing questioning of this never left her. In search of answers, Monika studied Mathematics and Physics, but went her own way when she discovered metaphysics and the strong connection between geometry and art.

Monika  studied at Berlin College of the Arts (today Berlin University of the Arts) and finished with an academic degree in printmaking. She is also a trained photographer.
