Behind my Series "First There Was Magic"

Behind my Series "First There Was Magic"

I've been thinking and working on the themes and concepts of my Series "First There Was Magic" for years now. 

Women's place in the world, their representation through history, mythologies, psychology, the ideas of the antihero, the voice within, the sacred, intuition, playfulness, "girliness" or girl culture.

I think what interests me is the raw freedom and desires inside all women and how tamed we've learned to become. It's what I look for in myself, my friends, my sisters, my mothers.

 

Girls of the Apocalypse

My first paintings of "First There Was Magic" are a fantasy.

A flawed world has just ended; That apocalypse became an inevitable subject with the current situation of the world. I imagine the beginning of a new world where only girl gangs and mystical creatures have survived. This "dream" is like creating a mythology, a collection of visual stories that hopefully resonate with women's emotions, life stages, inner conflicts. It's an ode to sisterhood, the search for freedom, strength, playfulness, and being your true self.

The animals are the companions, they help, they show the way, they are also a representation of a wild magic inside of those women.

There are no children, no men, the women do not appear in a filiation to anything, they do not have an age, they are shown as an eternal entity.

 

Now here are some visual inspirations that helped me create that first part of the series
