I make these paintings by using soil as paint. It is an invitation to thinking about what “earth” is witnessing and to activate the unconscious emotions, to get in touch with that.
The Other, different sizes, soil, pigment, on the canvas and paper, 2017-2022 (ongoing series)
As long as we ignore our dark side, the shadow gets stronger and affects our life down than before. When ignored and repressed feelings and thoughts are not transformed creatively, being kept in the shadow, in the background, they are projected to the outside world using their destructive power. This stage in denial transforms to personal and social blind an destruction in years.
With these projections, my personal experiences and encounters shaped my painting with “light” and “shadow”. As a result of these encounters, on my painting invites to follow inner voice and inner wild.
