The theory that the psyche as well as the body has undergone a long evolutionary process, which manifests itself in the form of a collective unconscious and in archetypal images, gives rise to a closer examination of collective visual material. All the images that are stored in us and those that currently surround us come together in our drawings - as signs, symbols, questions, comments, names and interchanges of meanings and as a stimulus to counter your own images. kick.
