Prompted by his interest in the Swiss psychoanalyst – Carl Jung’s framework of Anima and Animus, The Brooklyn-born artist Douglas Diaz investigated questions of belonging and the role that feminine and masculine energies play in the construction of his own identity.
Diaz explained “I explored pairing different qualities to examine and gather a deeper understanding of who I am and how I am effected by the Anima / Animus relationship. For example, pairing feminine qualities like intuition, creativity, or spirituality with masculine qualities, like action, oration, or physical strength — and observing how these dualities shape my art and my persona from within.”
