   "For me,  encountering a creative stimulus is akin to experiencing an accident that leaves an aftereffect for the rest of one's life.

I had an "accident" early in my life, I was confronted with the mysteries of living.

The occurrences that I experience at each turning point in my life are rituals that provide clues to my exploration.

I dive into the depths of myself with the help of these clues.

That solitary place of silence is a place of primordial creation that we all have in our unconscious. I find something that shines there, bring it back and present it before you as deliverables of my exploration.

 

The essence of living cannot be fully explained by the things of the physical world alone.

Nor is the answer found only in human behavior and psychology.

Physical things, consciousness, spirit. The world of souls and the divine field.

There are countless "lives" in this universe under the order of the circulation of unknown energy beyond human knowledge that connects all of these.

The "accidents" I encountered led me to have such a perspective and prompted me to explore.

 

I hope that my artworks may be devices for the viewers to glimpse the depths of their own consciousness, or mediums for the viewers to be conveyed messages by their own souls.

When anyone is lost in life.

To allow the light within them to shine.

My works may be created and exist for this purpose."

"INTO THE SELFVERSE"

 

This work is a "creatable" installation in which the viewer participates.

The viewer manipulates the light and experiences the "Selfverse," a universe of the self. The "Selfverse" is the viewer’s own world, which will be created by him or her, with infinite possibilities.

 

In this piece, Ráyka is focusing on our creativity. She believes that creativity is what we need the most right now, as we face the arrival of a new era. She also hopes that through this work, the viewer experiences the joy and excitement of creating with his or her own hands, and feel the magnificence of existence and possibilities of him/herself.

"Unknown Power"

 

There are things in this world that cannot be "defined" or "categorized."

Each of us, each thing that exists in this world, and even the world itself, is inherently more diverse, more unknown, and more full of possibilities than we realize.

Believe in the unknown within yourself. If you do so, the world will become more wonderful.

 

This series of works is developed mainly in mixed media.

The improvised forms in resin express the unclassifiable and undefinable, while the gold leaf represents the strength of unknown energy.
