who am I ? In asking who we become what
It has been a while since I have blogged about what is going on in my world.The title of my blog is a question that is frequently asked and even if we don't voice the question we have definitely thought about it.
This is an introduction to new pieces I have been working on. These new works are exploration of identity and the things we do to our facade in our quest for self...
I would love to hear your comments on identity and how it is created.
"It is important to give voice to the shadow,to allow it expression and presence,its just the other side of who we are."(Jung)
Before i stumbled upon the writings of Carl Jung that addresses the shadow, i was creating drawings that address childhood issues as it relates to my existence within a family. Most of the sketches ivolved shadows that poped up in dreams.It is still a puzzle as to how the mind works in dreams.
I am creating new works that explores childhood issues that have resurfaced through dreams etc. I am slowly becoming aware of myself through these works, can i tell you it is definitely therapeutic.
