ABOUT C.A REINALDA
"NICE TO MEET YOU"
Creator of subconscious mindmaps, where Claudy plays with the meta and beta of the mind. Visual representation of neurotransmitters that you create in a certain memory. That becomes the sketch of line-work and base. As I think the mind is more powerful my work has a spiritual undertone, this may involve belief in a supernatural, realm beyond the ordinarily observable world, a quest for an ultimate or sacred meaning, an encounter with one's own "inner dimension
Some people only trust what their senses perceive. I, on the other hand, are intrigued by the intangible spaces that not everyone can sense. I want to be the guide that opens people’s eyes to these worlds. These are the worlds where dreams are made
As we all like to identify with we can see, I like you to feel before seeing. I will create those mindmaps of the subconscious and take you with me of stories that where never told or even forgotten, the beautiful, the dark and even the sinister
