The Visual Analysis of the Myth of Psyche and Eros through Hegel's Dialectic

The process of my work is a complex system in which I combine philosophy, old knowledge about the human psyche and perception of the world, modern science, and … to create a work of art that tells a story through elements of visual language.

We try to understand ourselves as women and find stability within ourselves and our position in the world. What does it even mean to be a woman? And what is our function, our meaning?
In the era of feminism, transgender and transhumanism, when a person is just a number, the identity of a woman is masked in seemingly attractive roles — a beautiful wife, a loving and caring mother, a passionate lover, an always understanding wife, a top business woman — beautiful at all times, physically fit and mentally stable, perhaps even spiritually enlightened — and after all this I wonder what it means to be a woman and whether we can afford to show that we are imperfect.
The ancient Greek legend of Psyche and Amor (Soul and Love) is one of the few European stories that tells the story from a woman’s perspective. A story for young girls that connects us to Jungian archetypes. A kind of manual on how to find meaning, love and beauty. The state that is born from it. Hedonia. Joy.
I analyzed the story through Hegel’s dialectic. At first glance, I established an obvious thesis, then its opposite, the antithesis. When I analyzed and painted both, I synthesized the two. The stories comprise my own experiences and observations of the lives of the women around me.
