Dreams, Memories, Desires
When consciousness draws near to the unconscious, not only does it receive a devastating shock but something of its light penetrates into the darkness of the unconscious. The result is that the unconscious is no longer so remote and strange and terrifying, and this paves the way for an eventual union....What happens is that its contents cross over into consiousness more easily than before.
--Carl Jung, Mysterium Coniunctionis
Because I cannot photograph my dreams or explain the things my body knows, or analyze directly what I have loved most, I have to paint.
