Sharing a Vision: Art is exploring our unconscious, endless universe. Maria Cristina Cerminara is a multidisciplinary artist, working in the last years mainly exploring the combination of photography with drawings and different art techniques. She lives and works in Rome, where she was born. Her art research focuses on the reactions of contemporary human beings faced with the shattering of their illusion of total control over reality/nature, and she is interested in the sense of isolation and loneliness pervading an increasingly alienated world. In her latest work, she explores women's body perception in different cultures, generating sensual creatures born in an unconscious feminine universe. She mainly uses analog and digital drawings, collages, and paintings. Although her artworks often show the dramatic realities surrounding us, her style is always dreamy and surrealistic, showing a deep connection with natural elements. One of the main purposes of her art is to show how women often have an unconscious natural power that is often hidden and literally deleted by oppressive cultures. Women and generally humans nowadays in many countries live in a condition of fear and oppressive control. In Cristina's work, one can truly perceive the free-flowing energies of a liberated universal women/human condition.
