Anima Mundi

The trees, the wind, the flowers - they all touch our senses and are our sources for a peaceful world.
 
Art can and should be a portal into the invisible.
 
The world soul is a religious and natural philosophical concept. It is based on the idea of an analogy between the totality of the cosmos and the individual living being, especially the human being. 

I am an artist, a graduate engineer in architecture (FH), director of this gallery - and always in search of the wisdom of ancient cultures and their way of connecting with the world.

The title "Anima Mundi" stands for the world soul and the hidden mystery behind the forms of the visible.

The architects of the Middle Ages recognized our deeper connection with the world soul.

In 2019, at the Archaeological Museum of Naples, I was able to see works by Antonio Canova, a Renaissance artist.

With him, and in Florence with other artists of the time, I studied how they transferred the invisible structure of the World Soul into architecture, paintings or sculptures and made it tangible for us.
 
There is a series on this in this exhibition: photographs with painting transferred to acrylic glass (transfer art).

Paradise - Hawaii

I also studied our connection to the earth and the cosmos in the temple buildings in Hawaii (since 1998) and in Sardinia (since 2007).

I love to explore the unknown and have also studied with shamans, for example in Hawaii and Canada.

For me, it's about searching for the hidden meaning of our creation.

How does our soul work?

In 2007 I founded the Alohana Institute (Coaching & Psychotherapy) and help people to heal their traumas and to unfold their rich potential.

Art became more and more a tool for me to heal and to be even closer to the world (human & nature) with it. 

We are more than one person having an experience, or one group. In reality, we are all one - invisible patterns connect us to others around the globe.

My motivation

In all the works I was concerned with the relationship of man to nature and the soul of the landscape.
This exhibition is an invitation to see the unknown, the invisible, to understand the soul of the world, that there is a connection between everything.
 
The trees, the wind, the flowers - they all touch our senses and are our sources for a peaceful world.
 
Art can and should be a portal into the invisible.
 
The world soul is a religious and natural philosophical concept. It is based on the idea of an analogy between the totality of the cosmos and the individual living being, especially the human being. 

I am an artist, a graduate engineer in architecture (FH), director of this gallery - and always in search of the wisdom of ancient cultures and their way of connecting with the world.

My research took me to Mexico, Hawaii, Sardinia, Malta, Stonehenge (England) and Carnac (France).

The title "Anima Mundi" stands for the world soul and the hidden mystery behind the forms of the visible.

  Dear art lovers, I am happy to share my art with you.

Art Gallery Susanne Rikus


Art is passion - it is a journey for me and a great way to touch people's heart and soul.


My paintings give hope and people get more vision and believe in themselves.
I have lived in Hawaii and Vancouver.
In my personal life, I needed healing after a serious car accident and went to Hawaii to study. Later I learned hypnosis and other techniques to heal myself.

I am deeply connected to nature and to the subject I want to express.

My visions and my heart guide me to paint these abstract and also figurative paintings.
 
The ancient cultures inspire me, they contain powerful wisdom that we need in cities to connect inward, to have less fear and more trust.
Art is food for the soul.

Art is more than an investment, it is a partner that talks back, that creates an atmosphere and supports one's dreams and mission.

I feel called to inspire and empower people to believe in themselves and in life. 
As an architect, artist and Feng Shui consultant, you will receive unique advice on where to hang your artwork to get the most out of it.

Have a wonderful day and we will change...maybe from the inside out.

Behind every person, lies a true story. Who am I?
 How does my project come to life?
 Let me take you on a journey that’s been anything but ordinary.
