A dream is the subconscious mind speaking to the conscious mind. It does not speak in reason or language, but employs feelings and images. A myth functions in the same way, slowly revealing insights to those who are ready to receive them. The rhapsodic imagery of a myth is an invitation; the narrative a framework that at times literally encapsulates history. Ancient stories speak to us de profundis, from a place more felt than thought. They function not as windows or doorways that we pass through, but as the very substance that our collective imagination is made from. The Mythologies series draws its heat from the atavistic narratives of ancient peoples, seeking to join them around the fire. These works are at times deeply personal, but always point toward the universal.
