Universal Αrchetypes – Symbols of the Psyche..

On a wintry ray

Now, even as you rest upon the broad shoulders of slumber,
even when they throw you in the numbed chest of the sea,
you are looking for corners ,
where black has been rubbed off and cannot endure.
You diligently seek for the appointed blade,
to pierce your heart, and open it to light.


A series of artworks that explore the existential and transformative qualities of color, emerging from the silent world of black. These images are portrayed as enigmatic symbols that can serve as gateways to otherworldly realms and, simultaneously, as journeys of self-discovery and inner landscape mapping of the Soul. Images that imprint the Cosmic Ceremony of life, where people, molecules, and worlds are carried by an unstoppable tide. Planets and suns derive and flow from the heart of Existence, only to eventually return back. These images are depicted as magical psychographs, allowing us to peer into what happens in their hidden, unknown, primal, mysterious, eternal, the unspeakable and untouchable side. They delve into universal themes of existence and life, employing the language of the collective unconsciousness of humanity, the language of archetypes according to Jung. Archetypes are global. We encounter them in dreams, in visions, in ancient mythology, in fairy tales, in the magical visual language of children, and in the mystical rituals of ancient tribal communities, as symbols that express the unfiltered psychic experience. They have the power to penetrate the consciousness and influence the perceived reality. They can communicate and speak to a deep level of human consciousness, touching the soul. Like dreams, they are simultaneously distant and familiar. They contain a series of allegories and symbols that the subconscious perceives in order to guide us towards self-purification and redemption. The time they explore is an eternal present, like the Dreamtime, as the Aboriginals of Australia call it, for whom it represents the true reality and forges a living path between people’s souls. For Jung, archetypes represent an inexhaustible wellspring of ancestral knowledge concerning the profound relationships between God, humanity, and the universe. Archetypes have always been and continue to be living psychic forces that demand serious consideration because they have always existed as servers of protection and salvation and their violation carries the “perils of the soul”.

Welcome to the world of painting and art!
Art for me is a secret gateway to transition and communicate with the magical parallel reality, to breathe and reconnect with my soul's song. Through art I discover every time from the beginning the path to converse with a deep and invisible side of the world, to be able to transform darkness into light and pain into a path for rebirth and transformation
