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 .
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:
