The Jung Center Gallery presents Becky Soria: Woman and Her Symbols opening reception
Becky Soria’s figural paintings evoke universal symbols. Inspired by Paleolithic iconography and with a background in the biological sciences, Soria beautifully portrays the bodies of women and animals. She is concerned with intense emotions, bodily states, and peak experiences – love, fierce pain, despair, ecstasy, and discomfiture.
In her Jung Center exhibition, Women and Her Symbols, Soria ponders whether the female taps into the same or a potentially different collective unconscious than her male counterpart. She also raises the question of whether the archetypal symbols of the collective unconscious undergo mutation or variation. Soria presents the evolutionary possibility of a collective unconscious struggling to evolve itself in a deconstructive technological epoch.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through May 31.
