July 2018: Roxanne Sexauer has both BFA and MFA degrees in Printmaking. She studied first with Mauricio Lasansky at the University of Iowa and later at the State University of New York at Purchase, with Antonio Frasconi. She is a Full Professor, having been on the faculty at California State University, Long Beach since 1989, and teaches Relief, Etching, The Survey of Printmaking, Advanced Printmaking, and The History of Prints and Drawings.“My unrelenting and over-riding progression is towards devotion and long, serious work on a woodcut matrix. The major evolutionary change has been in my method of both drawing on and cutting the blocks. If anything, that method has become more obsessively complex and compulsive with the passage of time. In a strange way, the technical limitations of using simple gouges and veiners have actually enriched the medium for me. My authentic voice has to do with the connection between the mark of the hand in this specific medium, driven by a meditation on memory, place and temporality.” Roxanne Sexauer Roxanne at Atelierhaus Beisinghoff
August 2017: Héloise Plamondon-Pagé from Quebec is our 12. artist in residence. She wrote: "April and May 2018, I participated in an artist residency at the Banff Center of Arts and Creativity, in Alberta (Canada). I used the nature prints I made during my stay in Rhoden to create a large scale installation. To do so, I digitalized all the nature prints I made at the Beisinghoff residency. Then I changed the scale of the plants and screen printed it on geotextile to create a kind of "dreamed forest". . Dreamed Forest vimeo

|2015 Lauren Pakradooni Lauren Pakradooni was here together with Tegan Emerson. Lauren about the Beisinghoff residency: "My experience in your studio and home was deeply influential, working with you gave me insight into the relationship between life and art, finding a way to enjoy your surroundings while focused on an intensive project. The portfolio of monotypes I made in your studio were an important discovery of color, shape, and composition. The finished prints and experiments informed a shift in the way I work, including new technical practises as well as concepts in my imagery. Your studio is equipped with materials and tools that are professional and well maintained and are able to accommodate a variety of printmaking processes and techniques. A vertical etching tank would be an excellent addition, which would require less maintenance and have more predictable results. A vertical etch tank with edinburgh etch is more safe and contained, less hazardous to people and the environment." August 2015: Lauren Pakradooni made monoprints and gave a sound performance. artcamp.de/artists/atelierhausbeisinghoff|
Lauren (2018) about the ruins in Kassel, Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe: "My work has continued to reference the idea of the ruin, through installations of sculptures that suggest small fragments and elements of larger structures. The installation resembles something between the archelogical dig site or a construction site, suggesting either things are about to come together or have fallen apart. The word "fake" doesn't really find its way in how I describe my work, I am not trying to emulate or simulate a specific "real" thing. But I am interested in the slippages between these ideas of what constitues the built world. I directly apply paper that I have printed unto the surface of my sculptures, and often reference the positive and negative language of printmaking. ... I have been wanting to locate the work more in the writing of Walter Benjamin, in his thinking of the non-linear nature of history in relationship to Paul Klee's "Angelus Novus"

The word wandeln is carved into a paving stone of local pink sandstone located on a pathway leading from one of the entry points to the Lustgarten and is intended to be discovered by the viewer. Because the work is set into the ground the viewer must slow down and perhaps even come to a complete stop in order to read and understand the letters. This slowing of pace is intended to bring the viewer towards a more peaceful and calm experience of the hidden garden. When pausing to read the viewers must bow their head as if in prayer or reverence; this adds to the feeling that one is entering a special place. The physical act of bowing in response to wandeln makes the viewer a part of the work itself, in a sense they have been changed by their experience of the work and become part of it. As an element in the Kunstpfad (art trail) wandeln is an important word because it means not only to walk but also to change or convert and the hope is that people who enter this garden will be changed by their journey through it.

“The Beisinghoff Printmaking Residency is more than just the opportunity to work in a print studio. It provides an intimate setting that ignites the senses. The large garden outside the studio is a blaze of color by mid-summer while the sound of farm animals mingles with church bells throughout the day. Nestled in the patchwork geometry of the German countryside, the village of Rhoden is a unique place to create work. You will also gain a sense of German history and culture from living with the Besinghoffs, two extraordinary people who are dedicated to the arts.” Susan Goethel Campbell
