Allouche Gallery is delighted to announce Minds and Bodies, the first solo exhibition with Slovenia-based artist Anaja Hvastija Gaia. Minds and Bodies emerges from an introspective dialogue between the mind-body connection, presenting a language of formal elements that invite contemplation to the mysterious journey of the human experience.

Anaja Hvastija Gaia observes the depths of human consciousness by using the canvas as a portal for self- reflection. Through her paintings, she reveals a realm of contemplation and meditation, inviting viewers to explore the space of their psyche.

Within her compositions, one encounters pondering feminine figures, each embodying facets of introspective views. These figures serve as vessels for viewers to project their thoughts, emotions, and experiences, fostering a sense of connection and resonance. Gaia’s portrayal of natural landscapes serves as a backdrop for these contemplative scenes, evoking a sense of serenity and tranquility. The inclusion of mountain ranges and bodies of water further enhances this atmosphere, symbolizing the unity of fragments and memories within the vast expanse of the unconscious mind.

Through these formal elements, Gaia creates a space where the mind and body are intricately intertwined, bridging the gap between conscious thought and subconscious exploration. Her work serves as a gateway to delve into the recesses of one’s innermost thoughts and emotions, offering a journey of self-discovery and enlightenment. Minds and Bodies marks Gaia’s first solo exhibition with Allouche Gallery.
