    'VISION QUESTS':

    Content:

    Over a 50 year period I have returned time and again to the subject of Ancient Myth focusing on the Classics and Celtic themes. A keen interest in the philosophy of Carl Jung has  also underscored my visual art paractice of painting with a cyclical aspect which involves both the male/female aspect of my personality.  This is what Jung calls the 'Anima' and 'Animus' and how this connects individuals to the 'architypes ' found in myths and fairytales.Working from these sources I access my core identity in the relation to the world today.The writer Helene Cixous has discussed this process in her work Dream I Tell You [2006].

    Form:

    I have used two dimensional abstract methods called stratigraphy to make my paintings. This process mimics a kind of geological layering using pigment and paper and collage.A final image emerges over a period of time which the viewer is invited to contemplate.... can a level of  a level of liminality be reached? This is for the viewer to decide.

    Summary: 

    Visually influenced by the Europen art work of Anselm Kiefer;Gerhard Richter and Mimmo Paladino, i aim to expand the current subject matter to include  Celtic Myth:

    The Mabinogion .
