Vosganian

Vosganian, Michaela

Statement

The artistic creation represents for me a form of existence, spirituality and unconditional love.

Credo

I think that there is no border between my creation and my spiritual approach, that why, in the last decade I have founded a new spiritual aesthetic in which I really believe, called by me “archetypal trans-realism”. This orientationproposes, on the one hand, to reinstate the archetypal functions of art – the ritual, the catharsis, the healing and the ecstasy, and on the other hand, try to express a different form of the surreal,  the trans-real, emerging from extended states of consciousness which arise out of spiritual dreaming. As well, this aesthetic has related to my theoretical and practical approach of a Triple module of vibrational therapy that I work with, both as a teacher and as a spiritual guide and healer.
