Watercolor with acrylic painting, an abstract portrait of a woman with her hair transformed to snakes. In philosophy and esoteric knowledges the snake or serpent is a symbol of the initial material, in need of transformation, the chthonic, moist element of water, female, standing for unconscious symbol for many things depending on the context, also wisdom. Also as a famous psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Dr. Carl Gustav Jung says, “the serpent is at the basis of a whole philosophical system, of Tantrism; it is Kundalini, the Kundalini serpent”. In this painting I have using spontaneous strokes of brush and pastels to express the transformation of a forms from harmony in to a chaos.
Materials: watercolour pains, acrylic and oil pastel on heavy weight water-colour fine art paper.
