Muriel Lässer:
Heart of the Sun
10.11.–2.12.2012
_


[mandalas] ... are all based on the squaring of a circle.
Their basic motif is the premonition of a centre of personality, a kind of central point within the psyche, to which everything is related, by which everything is arranged, and which is itself a source of energy. The energy of the central point is manifested in the almost irresistible compulsion and urge to become what one is, just as every organism is driven to assume the form that is characteristic of its nature, no matter what the circumstances. This centre is not felt or thought of as the ego but, if one may so express it, as the self. Although the centre is represented by an innermost point, it is surrounded by a periphery containing everything that belongs to the self -- the paired opposites that make up the total personality. This totality comprises consciousness first of all, then the personal unconscious, and finally an indefinitely large segment of the collective unconscious whose archetypes are common to all mankind.

Her approach to painting is intuitive and she plays with the possibility of controling water and colour. The work is done in a meditative way each step following the action before in a suprising but calculated way.
The new paintings exhibited deal with the self, the mandala and the psyche in fragments all depicted with the recurring form of a circle.
