The bodyenables physical experience. It is also an interface to bot h intellectual and physical stimuli. During one of her artistic periods Auli Korhonen wanted to combine different states and levels of human existence. The body and mind, consciousness, feelings and intellect are in a continuous interaction with each other forming an entity.
Deepening one's mental experiences and refining the senses lead to an insight of the connection between the physical and intellectual worlds that form an entity, a unity. A series of self-portraits was produced: nudes where the human body, tense like a tightened spring, rests between space and matter.
The large paintings study the basic elements of nature, the harmony of cosmic building blocks through the body. The artist respects her object and makes it into a temple. Thus, the conscious experiences of silence and the perceptions of the body merge and expand to cover the entire scope of human existence.
