Artist's description: "Diving n.19" belongs to a collection of paintings evoking a solitary jump into the unknown for self-discovery. A spiritual communion with nature and the ocean can be beautiful and frightening at the same time. Mindscapes exploring the themes of awareness, sense of self and freedom. Diving as a primordial mental and physical state, an ancestral instinct of submission to the tide. Surrendering to the current that carries away, overwhelms and releases giving us back to ourselves with a rhythm that is like the stream of our thoughts and our choices in a constant battle between autonomy and dependence, conventions and invention, attack and defence.
