I exist in a genre of art that appeals to collective cultural memory. I approach collective cultural memory through two avenues. Avenue one explores pop culture via the internet, where I mine and subsequently image-transfer representational imagery of both popular and esoteric occult iconographies onto the canvas surface, as abstracted collaged elements.
Avenue two explores Jungian psychoanalysis. Jung’s research operated with the theory that our unconscious not only contains personal but also impersonal collective components, in the form of inherited categories or archetypes.
My current practice marks a stage of fruition that conjoins these two avenues to create a third avenue. Through this third avenue I communicate an obsessive and endless chase of one’s own shadow with the hope of glimpsing the self, by utilizing Jung’s writings on the self as a guiding principle.
