Painting

During all those years of traveling she continued painting and drawing. Once a painter, always a painter. The work has many facets. Feelings and impressions, sometimes subtile, but also powerful and above all the use of bright colors are specific for her art. Expressionism, Abstract as well as Figurative paintings, explosions of color, gold and bronze, memories and emotions are telling their story. 

Josina uses mixed techniques, some developped herself, in a very personal style, abstracts, flowers and landscapes, recognizable or with free expression. The composition,technique, the colors and the shapes are giving an extra dimension to her paintings. 

Secondlife and the Virtual Worlds

In the end of 2006 she started working in Secondlife, looking for new possibilities in the Metaverse.

Creativity

(or "creativeness") is a mental process involving the generation of new ideas or concepts, or new associations between existing ideas or concepts. Creative innovation might require co-activation and communication between regions of the brain that ordinarily are not strongly connected. Creativity techniques are heuristic methods to facilitate creativity in a person or a group of people. Generally, most creativity techniques use associations between the goal (or the problem), the current state (which may be an imperfect solution to the problem), and some stimulus (possibly selected randomly). A random image, sound, or article can be used instead of a random word as a kind of creativity goal or provocation. In Secondlife collaboration  of Art and science is a need the outcome is just beautiful.

 

“Its the pervading Law of all things organic or non-organic,

Of all things physical and metaphysical,

Of all the true manifestations of the head,

Of the heart, of the soul,

That the life is recognizable in its expression,

That form always follows function,

That is the Law”.

Henri Labouste 1801-1875
