Paulina R V Photography Work
The work of Paulina R V, now residing in Slovakia, isn’t limited to only paint, printmaking, design, or animation. She is also exploring the world of photography. Intrigued with these girls flying, bodies laying on backyards filled with old rusted pieces of metals going away somewhere in space following other bodies, I questioned myself whether it’s coming from some sort of dream, or the artist is trying to question the reality of these girls? Do they have an identity? Why are they flying? Why so many of them? I’ve asked Paulina about this work and here is a bit about it:
“Cycle of photographies with flying bodies was inspired by author’s dreams, myths and stories and psychological meaning of fairy-tales of the wild woman archetypes paraphrased by writer Clarissa Pinkola Estes in her book “Women Who Run With the Wolves” and by Jung’s thesis about human unconscious and archetypes.
Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women.
The mythical imagination has always produced images and stories of psychic reality. Fairy tales are simple and pure expressions of the collective unconscious and offer a clear understanding of universal patterns in the human psyche.
This cycle is a celebration of inner power within each woman”.
