Playing for Keeps by Annika Cox, Mixed Media on Canvas
16 x 22
Annika Cox was born in London in 1979. She studied Theatre Design and Practice at Croydon College 2002-2005 and completed her Masters in Art Psychotherapy from Roehampton University 2015-2018. As an artist and Jungian Art Psychotherapist, Cox is interested in exploring the complex and often contradictory nature of our relationships with the self, others and the universe. The artist constructs meaning by blending her dreams and memories with unconscious fantasies, wishes and desires, resulting in a dichotomy between what is known and the unknown. Her approach encourages an active engagement with the deeper hidden symbolic elements and emotions concealed in the image.
