Over the past couple of years, sculptures that resemble what I imagine might be produced by the very first artists on earth, have passed through my studio. Many who see them either ask me why they were created or suggest that I undertake some sort of inquiry as to why they have appeared in my life. While the idea of having some sort of dialogue with these creatures appeals to me- after all, Carl Jung did this with his art during the development of a process he called “active imagination”- I’ve yet to follow through on such a project. I’m not sure whether it is because I’m lazy or because I am in accord with Thomas Moore who wrote:
Usually when we explain a painting precisely, its mystery vanishes
along with its value. The very point of a good painting is to keep
us wondering, asking questions, offering interpretations and
Who knows? I may eventually end up doing some of this Jungian analysis where I treat these creations as archetypes and inquire into why they exist. For now, I am having fun creating new art using this strange cast of characters. I invite you to follow the link below to a video where some of these creatures show up. It’s called Eureka Garden Episode 5: Language of the Birds. I’d suggest listening with high quality headphones.
