The Sublimation Murals and their Unruly Children

My interest in imagery that derives its source from myth, personal identification and the subconscious are here explored in a very personal manifestation. These paintings are not explanation but are about the intrinsic ideas that are carried out within this framework. I use repeated symbols and pictographs for I believe ”The depiction of symbols no matter how archaic”* have a validity in their timelessness and universality. I am using my own psyche’s cunning and creativity to loop back into my experiences that preoccupy me and goad me on to a positive dismemberment of my malevolent animus.

*Gottlieb, A. and Rothko, M. (Letter to the New York Times 1943).

Definition of sublimation; to divert the energy of an impulse from its immediate goal to one of a higher use.
