States of mind and psychological positions portrayed through the mind and vision of Edvard Munch

Exploring the deepest fears and phobias of a collective consciounsess   They say that “The Scream” the most famous of Munch’s paintings is one of those paintings that capture the viewer regardless of anything. The communication is so obvious and universal that everyone has some kind of response to it. It was created in a moment of extreme distress and realization that nature is screaming. Munch was taking a walk with some friends and some moment he distanced himself from the group and experienced such an intense epiphany that he claimed later that he heard the nature scream. This...

From the outer core to the inner core, exploring the functioning that keeps the whole together through the eyes of Joan Miro

A power to zoom out and zoom in at the same time Exploring the abstraction of objects and their relation to the other objects is almost a reflection of scientific method, with which Joan Miro transported his inner world into the range of mediums that he used to express himself. Amidst brewing Europe both in terms of political instability and artists waking up each in their own interpretation of Surrealism, Dada, Abstract expressionism,… Miro was always loyal to the figurative shapes and rather than exploring the object itself in it’s complexity, he was stripping it down to the core and...

Salvador Dali’s eclectic narrative: an exploration of the furthest reaches of self-induced delirium that shook the world and mapped new boundaries of creativity

The conflict between the visible that we see and the visible that is hidden in Rene Magritte’s fascinating world full of contrasting ideas

The play between illusion and objective reality that always changes until the core is captured Magritte was always obsessed with the image that we create of both ourselves and the compendium of the world elements. Like many of 20th century painters, explorers and philosophers of life, his focus was on the core of being and trying to remove the illusion by making it obvious in his paintings. There is something poetic about his work and a delicate treatment of the imaginary, in almost child like narrative, speaks to us about the mind bending world he created and inhabited. The...

Giacometti’s transparent constructions, the figures that evoke the core, brought forward by the external events and internal power

Crystallization and the question of existentialism When I look at Giacometti’s sculptures, the first thing that comes to my mind is the other worldly in us as human beings. At the beginning of his career he would be working so intensely on the medium that from the large chunk of material only small percentage would end up a sculpture. He was almost making a micro world during this time, shaping and reshaping many pieces over and over again. Even revisiting and ultimately destroying many of the earlier works in this process of crystallization. There is a very interesting symbolism...
