Peripheral ARTeries meets
Natasha von Braun Lives and works in Russia, Moscow
"My artistic method is based primarily on the interrelation of the surrounding world with the inner world. Through my work I try to build a bridge between domestic everyday reality and the subconscious, this is somewhat reminiscent of psychoanalysis from the from the perspective of artist. But her there are no instructive theses and abstracts. As in life there are no simple unequivocal answers to all the questions. In my works I try to show the uncertainty, the fragility of human ideas about himself and about the outside world. To overcome such uncertain condition, I like to build a bridge across this volatile and unsteady part of the reality â€” a person has been getting experience, is feeling something, after then he can either immediately switch to his usual way of life, or turn aside in his intuition in the direction of those sensations that have caught him. And my bridge leads also there. I think that my art method is the architecture of the bridge which is a conductor from the ordinary and reflex reaction to things to the world of intuitive images, symbolic dreams, leading to a more deeper understanding of yourself. And so, by going to ordinary life, I mean an escapism, but an intuitive-sensual world is exactly the way to gain internal stability".
