My artistic development and position is based on perceiving painting as the closest means to achieve self-knowledge, but also the way to have an substantial communication with the social surrounding. By reinterpreting archetype images I aim to actualize topics and processes that influence cognition and spiritual development, simultaneously expressing cultural and political standpoints.
In my DA art projects (A-part-ness and An Other Two) and theoretical work, alchemy symbols were used to revise and express a personal experience of archetype images of wholeness, as well as a motive for reinterpretation of traditional ideas of male/female principles through the context of the individuation process in contemporary times.
