emotional landscape

This series approaches the relationship between humans and nature through the viewpoint of how natural spaces co-regulate our emotions, in the way they contribute to calmer emotional states and to the processing of difficult emotions. Raw explores the tranquil transformation that occurs when inner emotional landscapes are given space and allowed to exist, without constriction. It connects what happens within with the surrounding landscapes: how these physical atmospheres influence mental states and wellbeing. In this way, Raw underlines the interconnection between humans and the environment, and how this acknowledgment is essential in rekindling the relationship we have with nature, particularly urgent in the current climate scenario where grief, angst, disgust and anger play a key role in how we perceive and act: how we align with our values, goals and common good.

This “topography of the interior” emerged from the observation of water ripples by the seashore, during a calm, contemplative regular practice. Each painting symbolises a specific emotional state and the inevitable evolving quality of said emotion in our bodies and minds, in a similar way to the impermanence of water phenomena.
