About "Isolated Shadow I (Ed. 3/6)"

The aim of the Shadow Series is to explore the literal, metaphorical and psychological definitions of the word "shadow". These sculptures explore the absence or obtrusion of light through light absorbent surface textures and dark patination. The artist uses her own body as a reference for each sculpture alluding to the idea of the shadow as an inseparable companion. And finally the shadow represents an aspect of the unconscious mind as defined by Carl Gustav Jung within Memories, Dreams, Reflections.

This series aims to explore the complex nature of engaging with higher-order consciousness which is one of mankind's greatest gifts and simultaneous burdens. On a path towards self-knowledge, self-awareness and self-acceptance these sculptures activate the unconscious mind. The psychological shadow can haunt our lives, becoming a powerfully destructive force in both the internal and external world if we refuse to acknowledge its existence. On the other hand, if we consciously attempt to integrate and befriend the shadow it has the potential to enrich our lives, perhaps even becoming our greatest strength.

Although this series is largely autobiographical in nature, a reflection of the artist's internal struggles and triumphs, the sculptures also aim to represent the psychological shadow as a poignant universal phenomenon that is an integral aspect of the lived human experience.

Manuela Holzer

Manuela Holzer was born into a creative Austrian family. Her late Viennese grandmother, Grete Zimmer, was a famous actress in Austria and was also well known in many parts of Germany and Switzerland. Manuela matriculated from the Deutsche Internationale Schule Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2008 and thereafter decided to pursue her passion for art. She initially studied at the University of Witwatersrand where she completed her Bachelor in Fine Art in 2012. In 2013 she completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education cum laude at the University of Johannesburg. Thereafter, Manuela moved to the Western Cape to study further her and received a Master's degree in Visual Art from the University of Stellenbosch in 2016. She currently resides in Cape Town and furthers her artistic practice by creating sculptures of the female figure in various media. At present Manuela is also in the process of completing her PhD in Creative Production at the School of Arts at the University of Pretoria. The focus of her PhD study aims to make the challenging states of the human psyche associated with mental illness and health, such as psychosis, visible, relatable, and understandable through art.
