This project reflects my belief that art doesn't have to be just decorative - it can inspire thought and reflection.
I came across the idea of Carl Jung's archetypes by accident.
I overheard someone talking about them in a coffee shop.
I remember When, in art school many years ago, there was a discussion about them in the hallway between classes. It was a conversation pertaining to the archetypes being represented by the 12 apostles of Jesus.
The whole idea of Jung's human personality "diagram" fascinated me. I found myself researching each one with the idea of creating a 12 part series devoted to these archetypes.
I strove to make each drawing unique unto itself - simply because each one IS unique unto itself.
I wanted to create an artistic contemporary interpretation of them from todays point of view.
