Jana Brike, Cleansing Spirit, oil on linen, 8 x 8", 20.3 x 20.3 cm.

"The water theme is always present in my work.

The water in all cultures has been the element of femininity, of fluidity, of emotions and of the deep unconscious. I don’t see the environment as external from my characters or from myself. It is a calm surface within her soul-space with a cleansing property and with potential of a great force. It can be deadly, or it can be your force and power, you can be swallowed by it or you can own it and live it, and ride it, and be it."
