"Myth, as the foremost exponent of mythology, is a dream everyone has, just as everyone also dreams her or his own personal myths: Dream is the personalized myth, myth the depersonalized dream." Joseph Campbell

In summer 2017, I met a very passionate art collector who challenged me to create analogue collages inspired by our conversations about art and being an artist in today's world. The artworks I delivered contained elements of myths I had intuitively added to the composition that, without me knowing it, resonated with the collector's  personal journey.

Personal Mythologies were born from the impulse to encapsulate real lives stories into a mythological narrative and characterization.

Inspired by a keyword, a song, your origin story or just your full name, I will intuitively create a collage as a tribute to your path of life!

My offer:

Analogue collage on 250g acid free natural colored paper 14,8 x 21cm : 110 euro + shipment by registered post.

Concept and execution within 7 working days.

Would you like to have your own personal mythology immortalized in a unique collage?

Let's get to know each other over a virtual coffee break! 

 

What my collectors say...

"These artworks evoke and express graphically essential features of my existence; they help me see what my life has been. Also aesthetically appealing to me, they show a fine balance of colour, shape and texture. The more I interact with them the more I see and appreciate them." J.B.

"Sandra has a unique gift to make the invisible visible." R.L.

 A personal mythology project : The Sphinx, the Labyrinth and the death of Sisyphus 

“The Sphinx, the Labyrinth and the Death of Sisyphus” is a series of biographical analogue collages commissioned by a Swiss collector.

The series is nurtured in our conversations and an extensive correspondence about living one's individual mythology and finding freedom and meaning in one's artistic life. It aims at encapsulating a real life story into a mythological narrative and characterization inspired by the works of Harald Szeemann, Alberto Giacometti and Albert Camus that were often referred to in our exchanges.

The collages sampled below were commissioned separately and in real time between 2021 and 2023, each artwork therefore becoming the illustration of a chapter of the collector's life.

The collector would send me a keyword or a song title that I was left free to interpret intuitively. As the artist, I became the Sphinx, delivering a work rich with symbols, metaphors and puns; enigmas and hints towards potential answers to the conundrums of the mind, the complexity of human nature, artistic freedom and the ever returning question about the meaning and purpose of human existence.
