Monika Grand 2016

Symbolic oil paintings influenced by philosophy and spirituality, creating aesthetic forms and meaning from chaos.

About The Artist

I am fascinated with the implications of new psychological theories using Freudian and Jungian philosophy; I am striving to explore in further depth their theories of how the unconscious mind reveals itself through symbols. I would also like to discover and develop this vision through painting and sculpture. I believe that my art can help to give answers that can continue to add to the expansion of our awareness of the complex emotional mind and its development. Further, in my opinion, art has got the strongest power to enter our subconscious mind. The beauty, the meaning of it, can change our view and state of mind, and could change our lives too.

For me, the process of creating a painting is magical. It is like a visionary window allowing the viewer to open, enter and explore my subconscious mind. I work with oils directly onto canvas and work from the vision in my mind, creating aesthetic forms from chaos, thriving on the challenge, with the aim of creating a meaningful art through my choice of subject matter.
