Sandra von Haselberg's work aims to counteract a sense of disquietude in times when boundaries between the personal and the collective space have been radically redefined. She has long been preoccupied with the topic of identity and belonging, and a lot of her work is about creating idealised versions of the familiar, immersive places of wishful thinking, which depict not what she sees, but what she wants to see. In her "scapes" she uses colour both as an expression of emotional release and a platform for conceptual thought, that tries to immerse viewers in beautiful but ultimately alien, fairy tale universes.
She uses digital tools to create her work intermingled with photography. It is the outcome of a process of non-linear decision-making. She generates, selects, plays with a multitude of layers of colour, which come to life in the interplay between transparency, filters and blending.
