WHY IS "THE FIRST STORY" THE MYTH FOR OUR TIMES?
Jung comes to the conclusion that myth originates and functions to satisfy the psychological need for contact with the unconscious--not merely to announce the existence of the unconscious, but to let us experience it.
"THE STORY FOR OUR TIME"
Today our story is as our grandmothers' was
"KEEPING FAMILY AND LAND STRONG"
As a PRACTICING ARTIST, I find my practice is a continuum of my version of my personal Myth or Story that provides meaning
From a life of practice and sharing, I recognise that my work has impressions from many Cultural Collective memories
I have been tutored to also recognise impressions from a deeper Collective Unconscious Cauldron
My cultural weaving and my Karrinyarra families paintings, maintain universal visual arts practices
These practices have always nourished all generations from of humanities dawn
They are energetic and inspirational today as a living practicing continuum
We dare not limit their archetypal shape and influence with too much reason
Let the ARTS Metaphor take us to a mood experience that is an important keystone for our contemporary life
