ANIMUS-BODY & SPIRIT
The figure on the painting represents the male aspects of human psychology incarnated in the flesh. The green color symbolizes the human spirit and the hands that are ripping it are representing the effort of the spirit to free itself from the material aspect of existence.
“What has so far inspired my work is the human body and human perception. The way we see ourselves and the way the personality is transferred to the outside world by creating a new reality. I’m particularly interested in different states of consciousness, and their effect on the perception of time and space – what we call reality. The man in love perceives reality completely differently from the one who has been left, and therefore will be viewed differently by other people. Dream-like altered states of consciousness, along with the symbolism of dreams, are another important part of my work. The unique symbolism of each individual, in my opinion, is one of the highest levels of human creativity. The way in which we exist in this framework, to me, is a huge source of ideas and insights into the human being.”
