October to June (2019) is composed of 4 chapters which is the artist’s reinvention of the woodprints in the 15th century alchemy book titled Rosarium Philosophorum*. The metaphor and symbolism charged with one’s own attitude and sentimentality within the story of another cast questions on the inevitable condition of the individual within society, who is unable to easily differentiate or separate oneself from the society.
* The 20 woodcut prints in Rosarium Philosophorum can be interpreted in the symbolic meaning in different levels of the black, white, gold and red flowers in alchemy. This process of transition in these levels is relevant to the process of individuation, and is also related to the processes of psychotherapy.

“I talk to myself, thinking about him.
Just like me, he is seeking some happiness for his life.
Just like me, he is trying to avoid suffering in his life.
Just like me, he has known sadness, loneliness and despair.
Just like me, he is seeking to fulfill his needs.
Just like me, he is learning about life."
<The Compassion Exercise> Experience Avatar, Harry Palmer, 1987
