The Feminine Spirit
Alexandra Florschutz is a professional artist living and working in the South of England. She is renowned for her beautiful evocative Divine Source© paintings, use of tactile media and the infamous Pink Tent Installation which travels the country inspiring people about the new Feminine.
Alexandra is on a journey to rediscover the Source of a woman’s power, the feminine spirit, which thrived in the more female oriented cultures, only to be superseded by the patriarchal way of life. She wonders how women can retain the true nature of their gender while navigating our masculine driven world.
Her desire for women to become integrated in self knowledge, acceptance and love is paramount. She believes this integration can happen when women live in choice, respecting their body and mind and pleasurably celebrate their life.
Themes such as conception, birth, feminine sexuality and how this can be represented in the cycles of nature and life are reflected in her art work which she portrays symbolically in different ways, including the Spiral, Lotus flower and Divine Source ©.
The Divine Source© series represents the symbol of the feminine spirit and where a woman holds her natural power. The anatomical genitalia is only the external expression of a complex internal system of pleasure, reproduction and for the creation of new life.
The Spiral is a circle set free. It represents the ancient symbol of the goddess, the womb, fertility, feminine serpent force, continual change, and the evolution of the universe. It is also associated with the solar calendar, the rhythm of the seasons and the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.
One of the techniques Alexandra assumes begins with a particular evocative colour mood and out of this colour infusion the nascent image evolves. Other artworks are more realistic or representational. Her paintings often combine a variety of tactile media which is not only a pleasurable experience but allows the viewer to enter into a world of deep colour, sparkles and magic.
