Ouroboros

Winning Bid: R2,600.00

Maria Pienaar

Medium: Mixed media (fibre art)

Rationale: Ouroboros 2020.
Ouroboros is an archetypal symbol of a snake or serpent eating its own tail and is connected to the cycle of birth and death, or infinity. A symbol, according to Jung, can unleash creative energy by serving as a bridge between the known and the unknown. My work is an assemblage of stitching as craft/art, visual material that depicts the innovative processes that manifest during children’s work/play and the need for us to act and think in unprecedented ways, especially now in 2020.
