In 2015 I completed my MA in Process Oriented Psychology. I researched my thesis through my art practice and exploring my night time dreams. Childhood dreams, or the earliest dream or memory you can recall, have fascinated me for over a decade. Carl Jung suggested that one’s childhood dream reflects a fundamental pattern that run throughout one’s life. Arnold Mindell and Process Work takes this premise much further. In my thesis I talk about the development of psychological theories around childhood dreams within depth psychology and the implications of these ideas. I also apply it to my art practice to understand childhood dreams and my practice more deeply. It was a wonderful journey that I dedicated myself to for a good 3 years.
It’s been a while since my last post. Thankyou to everyone who made it to the opening of my ‘Off the Shelf’ exhibition last year. Since then I’ve taken time to gather myself, have a little break and discover new images that are emerging. I’ve started painting what I call ‘Shrines’.
