Munch, Edvard - Dance of Life and Vampire
Type of Spiritual Experience
Munch did not have any extreme spiritual experiences – but his visions, nightmares and dreams are all well represented in his paintings. He simply documented his experiences as paintings rather than write about them. Because of his upbringing they are dark, he painted his demons.
A description of the experience
|Munch’s Dance of Life shown here is hugely symbolic in a spiritual sense, showing the black/white of creation contrast, and of the form/function. It also shows the soul and higher spirit symbolism [male/female, shiva shakti etc].||
