Mixed Media - Paintings To Photo-art, Digital Mixed Media
LIGHT AFTER DARK AT THE CROSS SHADOWS NO. 4
"SOMEWHERE THE SUN IS SHINING"--This digital rendering evolved from an acrylic on canvas with textured cutouts then photographed as a contemporary abstract/ new mixed media image. Vase with BOLD blooms brings saturated color to the fore.
FOR ALL WHO SUFFER
This modern expressionist is a tribute to CARL JUNG. As a contemporary photo-art collage it has an old story to tell: A tale of contemporaneous shades of dark AND light emphasis where possibility emerges at the cross shadows of personal dawning. FOR THOSE WHO NEED SUPPORT - (COVID -19 )

THANK YOU for looking and considering my art work and images. Your time and your comments are prized! I appreciate your comments, social media support, and visits today –(and tomorrow.). (((*:*)) .
"WOKE": About that awakening, Carl Jung, whose work inspired this series wrote, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious ...wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one’s being, but by integration of the contraries.”
This image is symbolic of individuation, or the journey out of the cross shadows into “becoming who one is.” Jung believed that it is the end purpose of human life to experience wholeness. “The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are,” he wrote.
Here, the fullest expression of your character can take root and hold firmly. Then you, as an individual- represented here as the vessel at the center of the image- can stand out against an imposing backdrop as seen in this image. That very setting could interfere with the your perception unless you are awake to the shadows and darkness.
“The highest, most decisive experience is to be alone with one’s own self, “ Jung wrote, “ You must be alone to find out what supports you, when you find that you can not support yourself. Only this experience can give you an indestructible foundation.”
The gradations from black to white as well as the saturated colors in this image- along with the symbolic single vessel found at the window of opportunity there holding a bouquet of joie de vivre- represent the fullness of awakening to pure potential.
“What if I should discover that the poorest of the beggars and the most impudent of offenders are all within me; and that I stand in need of the alms of my own kindness, that I, myself, am the enemy who must be loved — what then?”
BEHIND THE SCENES :: I hope you will find a connection here - linger awhile, possibly start a conversation about the elements - spaces, lines, textures and rhythms or themes that speak to you. As we - each of us- (and also as a collection of living creatures) - face the fraught process of selection every day- may we find what is positive and possible. In creating my visual narratives, exploring any number of alternative techniques, I hope to achieve a shared sense with YOU—one of being “in the moment.” That is why often, I look to simple images and pull from what is around me : I take sketches on to canvas, take a photo of it and make a mixed media digital rendering. Or I may just use my mouse (computer, that is) to “paint” a piece solely on a blank screen ( Aether Art.) ZSANAN PHILOSOPHY: “NOT AN IMAGE BUT AN EXPERIENCE”--
