Ione Rucquoi’s work considers the disowned and unconscious aspects of the self. Exploring fundamental elements of human existence and experience – birth, death, loss and change – she dismantles the constructs of society and unveils the hidden and taboo.

Rucquoi seeks to liberate censored fears, anxieties and obsessions, to heighten awareness of Jung’s ‘Shadow’, and ultimately to represent emotion in its complexities.
