ARTIST STATEMENT: Kayo Albert is an artist whose unique paintings on Mylar are fluid, intuitive, translucent and complex. She works with charcoal, pastel, oil and enamel paints.
She is interested in what eyes cannot see – the mind and collective unconscious that unites all of us mysteriously and unknowingly.
Being influenced by Carl G. Jung and Joseph Campbell who combined psychology, philosophy, nature and divine inspiration to examine the unseeable, she explores these territories with her art.
Physicality of drawing and painting, immersion is the essential part of the process for her work. She must find where she is and how she is through the process of making art.
It also allows audiences to share the journey of her experience. They often describe her work as intricate, find new images and notions each time they view the work.
