Piamaria 'DesertDreamer' Von Konow, Finland Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement Piamaria is a transpersonal artist, who aspires towards harmony. She finds her inspiration ‘along the way’ as she journeys through her life and explores the world, and the worlds within. She has a fascination for Dreams, quantum physics, positive transformation and the multiple layers of reality. Her works, sometimes small, sometimes large... are ‘accessible’, often simple yet as if pregnant with some complex content 'between the lines'. She is versatile, values freedom, love and gentle diligence, and enjoys experimenting variety of approaches with her creative expression.
As a painter and a poet Piamaria produces imagery that is omni-cultural by nature with cross-cultural and archetypal references. Some amount of symbolism and underlying sense of the shamanesque, spiritual and the sacred aspects of life can be found in most of her works, whether expressed in figurative or abstract ways.
Most of her current visual work is in 2D: -drawings and paintings; mixed media, watercolor, pastels, acrylic, and ink on canvas/calico -murals -designs -photography -computer manipulated images -video
