Moving Gallery Exhibition

I drew the series I presented at the Moving Gallery in 2021 overnight. In my work, I am concerned with getting in touch with my inner wilderness. One way I do this is by being inspired by the visual culture of archaic peoples, but also by getting in touch with my unconscious. I try to do that by silencing my rational thoughts that have arisen in the modern human world. I do this through meditations or evoking active representations. That way, I can make a splash in my own invisibility and look for images that flash by but sometimes form a logical narrative. This world hidden in my unconscious, with all its characters and landscapes, is as much a reality as the “agreed reality” we share. By making these kinds of images, I hope that people themselves can get in touch with their inner wilderness or depth because I believe that the images I evoke come from an archetypal world. A world that is already within us as soon as we are born.
