ARTIST'S ROLE   Animating the Unconscious

The artist evolves humanity through the ages by researching and animating the images of the unconscious. They function as “higher” and “collective” humanity in creating the iconographic imagery of the soul in periods of Reformation (like the Renaissance or rebirth) in which humanity is reborn or transformed through art.

 “There is a need for individuals to find ways of transcending their limiting identities, of periodically committing egocide. The submission to God by following transformative spiritual practices can more safely engage the death-rebirth transcendence axis. Some cultures have elaborate and cathartics rites of passages for every stage of life. Our culture has not fostered safe death and rebirth rituals. So people create their own, consciously or unconsciously.”

"All this [collective nature] being so, it is not strange that the artist is an especially interesting case for the psychologist who uses an analytical method. The artist cannot be otherwise that full of conflicts, for two forces are at war within him." C. G. Jung
