Artist's description:

To understand how my paintings evolve it is necessary to read my artist's statement. The work is not chosen in a conscious manner:-
'I am consistently motivated by investigating my psyche and the unconscious mind. It has been a lifelong journey, inspired by Carl Jung and previous to that Freud. I am simply compelled to create and have been since I can remember. I work through painting, assemblage, digital art, and installation, employing various strategies to access animus, the shadow, and the collective unconscious. Through creative expression, I attempt to externalize the inner reality of my psyche. I attempt to transcend persona to connect with my true self where I hope to reconcile internal conflicts as Jung would have put it, ‘individuation’. The work is often full of symbolism and archetypes which I believe are often perceived and related to on an unconscious level.'
Gold often appears in my work. Its archetypal meaning I believe relates to understanding and enlightenment. It may be a journey, seeking knowledge and spirituality. The sun, warmth, compassion, truth and wealth. Although this painting is abstract, it is clearly floral and represents a meadow. Flowers often symbolise love and sexuality.
