The “Collective Unconscious" is a series of works inspired by psychoanalyst Carl Jung's theory of the same name, a phenomenon of universal unconscious archetypes and symbols. In my work, I allow the viewer to access his or her Collective Unconscious and discover these archetypes through seemingly abstract visions, colors, and patterns. My work begins with layers of wet-on-wet pigment, dispersed using decalcomania, from which I create order from chaos. The elements of collage which I add to my work are sourced primarily from old comic books from places I have lived and traveled, enabling the feeling of a truly cross-cultural Collective Unconscious. I believe through access to one's inner Collective Unconscious, we can discover great depths of our feelings, dreams, hopes, and desires.
