Life is like the tiles in the Domino’s game. You think you have it in order, hoping that the fall is foreseeable. But no, life is a set of tiles that we cannot control under any circumstances, but we insist that we can. We deceive ourselves day by day believing that we manage our destiny, but there is a force greater than us that shows us that we are subject to that energy of the Universe and it is she who is in charge. Our duty is to let ourselves be carried away listening to the soul and what it tells us in moments of meditation and silence. Control is a state of mind that unfortunately separates us from the centre of the heart where the real connection is. This control takes us away from that power source and keeps us like robots controlled by our brains. Where is the purpose of the soul? When is the time to stop controlling and let the circumstances flow? Control in my life has been an aspect that I have had to work on for many years and little by little and through lessons, I have learned to flow with the flow of life. This painting is a demonstration of my process.

Venezuelan-Spanish artist currently living and working in Sydney, Australia. Sieder´s paintings are an abstract interpretation of her personal perception of the world around and an exploration of the introspective self.
Optimal mental health is non-existent. The chaos of life is the result of a variety of mental processes triggered by intrusive thoughts. The paintings that comprise my body of work, are an exploration of the relation between conscious and sub-consciousness. Both, the media and dimensions for each work, change based on the density or immensity of the mental process portrayed. Each work in this series portrays a variety of intense emotions. Some are darker—like the airless feeling of a panic attack—and some lighter, like the feeling of hope and fulfilment.
Since childhood, I have been focused on analysing the nuances of human behaviour. Later in my life, and through my studies in psychology, I have come to realise that often people are unable to reflect and identify the intrusive thoughts that fill their psyche, thus precluding any attempt to receive the so much-needed help. This dark hole can be felt by many as a hopeless place. However, my paintings express that there is light in darkness. Through the reflection of oneself with the canvas, transcendence over diminished mental states begin to be possible.
When I work, I think of a white canvas as a clean, untouched territory. As a painting develops, I correlate the act of going deeply into the surface with going deeply into oneself. Painting becomes a meditative process between myself and the canvas —a point of concentration in field self-focus.
My aim in these soul-stirring series is for these works to resonate with the audience by challenging and pushing the limits of our comfort zone. An apparent first impression of discomfort leads the viewer to unfold the intrinsic beauty and evanescence of each scene.
