---------------------------------------------------------------------
Cenin (pronounce as Jeanine) is an autodidactic, self-taught, intuitive, visionary artist since 2005. She lives and creates in mind, womb, tomb and Istanbul. Cenin, her alter ego, means "fetus" in English. She studies the appearances or phenomena of the psyche - the various appearances and manifestations and forms that the psyche produces - and understood them with a depth of insight, then she reflects in her own image. Art for Cenin is a direct method of accessing the collective unconscious. She uses art to bring forward messages from her own personal unconscious using universal archetypes, symbols, subliminal messages, forms, colors, meshed with her personal - complex - iconographic - visual vocabulary. Her symbols do call up unconscious memories and infantile anxieties, but they also disclose a reality that never existed before and a need of self-reparation. So while her symbols do have a psychotic regressive side, they also have a progressive side. It is a progressive revelation of a universal structure that goes beyond the individual personal experience. Cenin's works concerns self alienation & actualization, the psychic state of infant hero, the after-effects of a child's separation from the mother through birth, the feelings of death-despair-melancholy, unfulfilled feminine idenitity, inner images of wounded mother & child, being unable to speak, traumatic feelings of being born, life vs. death instinct, alienation, self destruction & reparation, sacrificial infant/fetus gods, divine child, lost & found reality, layers of consciousness, dramatization of simulations, infantile anxiety, Jungian archetypal symbolism, gnosticism, occultism, juxtaposition of depressive and manic, mental interconnectivity...
