(medical/art vitae under construction)

Visual artist Dr. Maaia Jentus, currently based in Vienna, let us see the world from her unique perspective. Her drawings, paintings, photographs and collages are adding new layers to the reality through the search of work-life balance, psychological reflection and cursed cultural influence. The medicine as a casual clinical job and as a scientific work in a laboratory left an indelible mark on the artist’s work. The abundance of images borrowed from anatomical books and the practice of microscopy acquire new meaning through an interest in psychology and its abstract interpretations. The artist defends human emotions, which are commonly considered as socially unacceptable. She is admired and aesthetically inspired by biochemical processes, dream images, transformation experiences, interhuman reflections on dying and death. Professional activity stimulates thinking about the problems of professional ethics – a difficult topic for medicine and psychology in particular.
