The Story Behind the Gallery

 
I perceive myself as a storyteller, one that might through my work, inspire others to become consciously aware of the collective human experience.I love discovering the many unexpected role- models in religion ,mythology, art and the collective analysis handed down through generations to be paid attention to or not.
 
 
I start my work with thorough research of the theme to be portrayed via a sculpture. I take great care to describe, in a short text to go with the sculpture, the essence of the piece offered to you. However, it is important to note that since the themes are collective and thus often come out of the collective unconscious, there is a strong possibility for the onlooker to discover meanings that I did not know were there. Each work can become a personal expression of the buyer every bit as much as it is an expression of the artist. That is the beauty of it.
 
As in prehistoric cave paintings, I seek to portray the large idea. I avoid having a piece too analytical or copied from a real person's countenance; to do so would be a mere copy of one person's particular physiology and thus have no collective value at all.
 
The human experience, in my view, is not so much an experience of a male or female as it is simply an all-encompassing experience of being human. That I sculpt the themes more often as a female and far from physically perfect as not to interfere with the story told, is merely because the form and feeling is my own.

  • Series: ENCOUNTERS WITH THE SOUL - Blatantly Jungian themes such as collective nature of the Archetypes of the Unconscious as proposed in Carl Gustav Jung's Theory of the human psyche. In this series I love to play with The Shadow, theTrixter figure as it is expressed in many cultures, the Wise One in all of us, perhaps most of all the theme of Anima and Animus and so very many more. I feel that I could restrict myself to just these Jungian themes and never run out of inspiration- but alas- others call to me as well.
  • Series: PEOPLE OF THE DAWN - This series approaches a description in sculptural form as well as research of our earliest collective remembering evidenced in the field of anthropology, world religion, mythology as well as expression of these ideas in art from the earliest recorded time.
  • Series: THE LIGHTER SIDE OF LIFE - There comes a time in one’s life when we need to recall that time when we were filled with wonder and joy, a time when Hallmark movies, Norman Rockwell illustrations, or the rose covered cottages in paintings by: Thomas Kincaid soothed us even when knowing that everyday life is far from the romantic view depicted. In art we find delight in depictions of highly idealized scenes, of hens with fluffy chicks peacefully pegging around for worms- not a single hawk in sight. When we felt on top of the world and quite beautiful in our prom dress and later- in ball gowns at opera season premiers. When fashion was pure fun- So in this series of ‘THE LIGHTER SIDE OF LIFE’ I aim to bring you delight in simply pretty notions, where wearing a fluffy long white dress while gathering produce is not impossible.
  • Series: WHIMPOMDEARIES - The term 'Whimpomdearies' is a composite of: Whimsy, Pompous and Dear. Whimsy: Expressed by all of us; some more, some less, as we find delight in life and all it has to offer. Pompous: …is what we appear to be when we suffer from inflated Self-importance Dear: Refers to our charmed open-hearted approach to life, which can be wonderfully naïve at times. I have such a fun time creating these little characters that are a mirror image of us all, told or sculpted with a ‘tongue- in- cheek’ approach. These little figures capture our behavior with a smile at our sometime silly ways, what is missing is meanness. May you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them.
  • Series: WOMEN OF THE OLD TESTAMENT - The series of WOMEN OF THE OLD TESTAMENT is perhaps my most favored to do, it depicts extraordinary women in the sense of their courage, determination, insightfulness, and sheer will power. At some times expressed in gentleness of the sort that carries a quite power hard to understand for a type A personality and at other times with a fierceness that is intimidating if not outright frightening. They strife in their own way to succeed in their endeavors, in short: women of strong character, encouraging to all of us and to women in particular.
  • Series: ZODIAC - Wall Tiles

    • Amanda & Terrell Dye - Terrell and Amanda Dye discovered their mutual love for pottery when they attended a hand building class at their local community college. Terrell enjoys throwing functional and nonfunctional ware. He also hand builds and sculpts. His style ranges from hyper realistic to the absolutely absurd. Amanda hand builds mostly decorative pieces and takes great care in applying detailed and intricate glaze work. She draws much of her inspiration from the early twentieth century and lives by the words of the father of the Arts and Crafts movement William Morris, “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” The Dyes invite you to shun inadequate machine made mass produced items and embrace high quality handmade one of a kind pieces of art. Enrich your life and support your local artists.
    • Amy Eichler - Amy Eichler is a local artist, born and raised in Fayetteville and is a graduate of the University of Arkansas with a BA in Computer Science and Art with an emphasis in oil painting and drawing. She currently works for one of the largest dance companies in the world, Universal Dance Association, which has allowed her to travel and teach dance in nine countries. She locally splits her time between painting and operating as Dance Director at iNFiNiTi Cheer Dance & Tumble in Bentonville Arkansas. Painting much as dancing, is a physical self expression to capture the mood, emotion, or personality of the setting or model. Both disciplines emphasize texture in movement, allowing bold and graceful movements to work together to create a visually pleasing dance or painting.
    • Bill Garrison - His medium is most often in oil. If you ever have seen the paintings of this artists landscapes you will recognize his love of this earth and it’s treasures. Quote: “Having painted in many locations, I find that painting the landscapes of Arkansas is the most fulfilling of all.”
    • George Kountoupis - He is a truly masterful painter in oil as well as watercolor. He travels the world over to paint his incredible images. His statement about working at painting: “Studio painting is an intellectual, analytical exercise and I love it, but it can eventually lead to repetition in the work. Paintings doneoutdoors involve total observation and emotion. You can see the colors and feel the life around you. You can walk over, touch the water and get your hands wet. If you are true to that vision, the viewer will feel it to.”
    • Gloria Garrison - She has the gift of capturing those warm moments and perfect glimpses that one would like to remember forever, with a style imbued with nostalgia. Her love of the technique of water color is evident in the exciting flow of color and form over the paper, achieving effects that range from realism into the abstract.
    • Jason Sacran - He works masterfully in oil. To quote him: “I am interested in painting/documenting things of today, mostly with overlooked or forgotten aspects of everyday life – scenes we pass daily, people we know, but hardly ever think twice about. In the chaos of life, I belief we all take the simple and familiar things for granted.Sometimes they are the very things we come to miss.
    • Jeannie Stone - By claiming the landscape around her in both poetry and paint, she strives to render familiar places in slightly altered perspectives. Her desire is to begin narratives about how we view our land, the issues of possession, the issues of stewardship, the issues of inclusion, and what it means to have a sense of home that one can then carry wherever one may go in life.
    • Jimmy Leach - He paints and is inspired by the beauty of nature which he depicts in is works in oil. He lives and creates in rural North East Oklahoma. He states that: “The Viewer is the most important part of my work. I strive to take the viewer’s and eye to another place showing them a beautiful, expressive and painterly image”
    • John Porter Laster IV - His inspiration:” Faith in God, respect for humanity, and enjoyment of life should be the theme of my very best paintings. I want my work to be a celebration.” He works in oil and often in plein air mode as well as in his studio in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
    • Julie Mayser - Her work is instantly recognized as being created by her. Her style representational with a nod toward impressionism. Her Pastels are serene, whether depicting the solitude of the countryside, quite still life, or a portrait of animal or person.
    • M.M. Kent - His medium is most often oil & acrylic, both on canvas or board. In either case his work can be summed up by the terms: stunning, evocative as well as technically superb. “I am moved to paint primarily by affection. From an emotional response and an emphatic understanding of my subject, I produce art which is Romantic in nature. I have an impressionistic bend, looking for form as it is revealed by light rather than in the gravity of substance. Still, for me the ultimate beauty is already here in nature itself.”
    • Ruby Thacker - Ruby was born in Texas, but was ‘transplanted’ to Arkansas at an early age. She went from needle point design to clay- She studied with Professor Aaron Calvert at Henderson State University- Her chosen specialty in clay-work is to create the most delicate flowers in clay and applies them to her vessels. Artist Statement: ” I took a pottery class in 2007 at a local community college and never looked back. Clay is both the most frustrating and satisfying of mediums- feeling a lump of clay turning between your hands, knowing that by your will alone & a little luck will become a new singular creation. When a vessel comes through the glazing & firing process and turns out exactly as one imagined it- that is true satisfaction & very exhilarating.”
    • Susan Gibson - I am inspired by all beauty around me, people, nature, and still life, and am attracted by all their complexities. It is my ultimate goal to capture that "illusive extra something" that will touch and inspire. Inspiration for my paintings come from my photography of subjects that excite me by their beauty or touch me in an emotional sense. All my paintings are connected through the use of vivid, transparent, multi-layers of glazed color,. Often times, I will micro image a subject to add a touch of abstract to realism. It is also my goal to create a luminous body of work that will resonate my visions and feelings, capture a viewer's imagination through the unexpected, and grace lives. A painting should be a journey of enlightenment for an artist as well as the viewer. Many would call me a natural artist. I have always drawn and painted. However, I received private instruction at a young age with Florence McIntyre who is considered the mother of The Memphis School of Art. Over many years I received private instruction while living in Europe for eight years and attended seminars by some of America's Master Watercolorists. Many of my paintings have won awards over the years with the latest being the Gold Award, the Best of Show Award, at the 47th Mid-Southern Watercolor Exhibition. My paintings have appeared in Jackson Mississippi Museum, Jacksonville North Carolina Museum, Taos New Mexico Museum, Fulton Missouri Winston Churchill Museum, The Rockport Texas and The Little Rock Art Centers, as well as Gallery 246, Batesville, Arkansas, The South West Artist Gallery in Mena, Arkansas, and at the 1894 Gallery in Texarkana, AR.

    Who Is Ingrid Gipson?

     
    Ingrid Gipson was born in Germany. She chose to study Fashion Design and Marketing in Wiesbaden, Germany. She built for herself an impressive career in the field of fashion from designing to heading up companies. Her work took her to markets of Dallas, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and to several Countries in Europe.

    Before retiring full time she consulted with manufacturers in all fields of the industry from financing to design and production through marketing/merchandising & sales strategies. She was much sought after to lecture to Fashion Design senior level students at University of Texas at Austin, Texas Tech and others.
     
     
    After retiring to the South Eastern Oklahoma Ouachita Mountains she took the opportunity to return to her love of Art and studies of: Jungian Psychology, Anthropology, Mythology and Comparative Religion, in short how we, collectively, experience life. "To translate these themes in to sculpture is what inspires me."
     
    Ingrid Gipson selects the motif for each work very carefully and edits rigorously where it has collective meaning and thus addresses the deepest most ancient parts within us all. She insists that all her work be original and created without any molds whatsoever. Some of her motifs are the dream images of Jungian Psychology mixed with the mythological and religious symbolism of art and tales told since prehistory. She finds endlessly fascinating how the themes repeat themselves in different guises throughout the ages and vastly varying cultures.
     
    Being created from clay the sculptures are subjected to incredible stresses in firings, and have resulted in total destruction more often than one might imagine. There is a reason that one will seldom find large sculptures in clay. Small fissures or detachments are repaired and thus become evidence of its passage in the process of becoming.

    $ 800.00

    Medium: stoneware clay, multiple glazes, acrylics & gold luster on wood base

    Size: life sized, about: 15” tall x 12.5” wide x 9” deep

    Wise Old Man,just as all Archetypes, have a bright positive side that points upward so also a side that points downward; partly negative and unfavorable, partly chthonic, but for the rest merely neutral.In our culture, ancient as well as modern, we find Archetypes representative of Myrddin; such as Wotan the God of Germanic Mythology, Osiris of Egyptian Mythology as well as Darth Vader from Star Wars as well as Nietzsche’s Zarathustra.For C.G. Jung Wise OldMan was Philemon

    Wise Old Man contains within it the seed of an enantiodromia, of a conversion in to its opposite. What is of personal interest to me in most of the Archetypes is that Evil can be used to do Good ,but of greatest delight and hope to me is that Evil itself can convert spontaneously to Good

    All of the Archetypes, and thus The Wise Old Man, can be as guides within us, if through the individuation process we shed light on them and bring them to our conscious mind.

    It is our collective purpose to become more of what we have the potential to be, and thus the Archetypes are much like traveling companions in our individuation process.

    BLACK DIASPORA (I)
    $ 250.00
    $ 650.00

    Medium: Stone ware clay, multiple glazes, platinum luster & acrylic

    Size: about life sized & wall mounted

    There have been so very many mass human injustices throughout the ages of which the Black experience is one.

    In reading Ronald Seagal’s book 'the black Diaspora' wherein he tells the story of African descended people existing outside Africa. He describes the collective experience spanning over five centuries of slave trades participated in by many nations. He tells the story without a trace of sensationalism thus allowing the dark potency of the events center stage. He takes us, via his prose, as if being a passenger through the course of the struggle against Colonial rule and racial oppressions; he shows the continuing plight of peoples confined by the consequences of past prejudices to the still present ones.

    To me the most important, all though poignant description, are the wondrous benefits and achievements we have collectively gained from the Diaspora of an oppressed, persecuted and at times despised people. This influence has enriched us immeasurable in world culture, in music, in language and literature, painting, sculpture and architecture let alone the culinary influences. Most of all it has shown us once again how the human spirit, in its love and demand of freedom is equipped to absorb the darkest immoralities and turn them in to triumph of light.

    Let us not fall in to a slumber of complacency- much more needs to be achieved to stamp out the prejudices still very present in all of us, Black and White.

    I was so much taken with Segal's approach that I felt compelled to portray the experience in a face sculpture, showing the pain and suffering as well as the unbelievable strength it took to accomplish the collective survival and moral triumph of the Black people.

    LOST IN MEMORIES
    $ 900.00

    Medium: stoneware clay, wax & acrylic patina, on wood base

    Size: life sized, about 17.5” tall x 19” wide x 11.5” deep

    Lost in memories can be similar to dreaming, meditating or praying. If one has lived for any significant time at all one will have accumulated memories, some sweet, some hurtful, some

    filled with regret, others filled with joy, profound sadness or moments of great insight and personal development.

    Images might drift through our minds from long ago or even recent-all amounting to getting lost, even for just a little time, in memories.

    I wanted this sculpture to reflect some of these fleeting emotions while drifting thus through memories; a bit pensive, a bit at peace, a bit of acceptance --

    PURE JOY
    $ 1,200.00

    Medium: stoneware clay, multiple glazes, acrylics & gold luster, on wood base-

    Size: Life sized plus, about 22' tall x 19' wide x 13' deep

    There are moments in our life when ‘pure joy’ is within and all around us, truly a gift from the Gods. The wisest of us will be fully aware of that moment and revel in it and be cognizant of the fact that it is often fleeting.

    I sculpted this figure with the intend to portrait this very moment, however fleeting it might be.

    May it bring you as much joy in viewing it as it brought me in creating it.

    THE HERMITV - The Solitary Fire Within
    $ 750.00

    Medium: stoneware clay, multiple glazes & gold luster

    Size: about life sized & wall-mounted

    The Hermit is so much more complex then it appears on the surface, to live the life of a Hermit to develop one’s own explanations for what might be, what ought to be, or what could be-.

    Let's not quickly judge the hermit for we might be mistaken when thinking it's an easy life. The Hermit is not one to be distant from people; he is distant by virtue of seeing things differently.

    To live as a Hermit is a big sacrifice and lonely-however, the rewards are there as well; it's the fire within.

    BUFFALO WOMAN II
    $ 900.00

    Medium: stoneware clay ,multiple glazes, acrylics, on wood base

    Size: about 26” tall x 14” wide x 8” deep

    Buffalo Woman is a central myth of the plains tribes, especially the Lakota & Sioux, but not only these two tribes. Buffalo Woman is often referred to by the name of White Buffalo Calf Woman by the Lakota. She is the one who brought them the Seven Sacred Rituals.

    There are, as is with many of the Worlds Mythologies, various versions; all of them with more or less the same intend of teachings.

    The Central theme is this: To have communication with the Creator through Prayer with clear intend for Peace, Harmony and Balance for all Life living in the Earth Mother.

    TURNING TOWARD THE MORNING STAR I
    $ 900.00

    Medium: Stoneware clay, multiple glazes, acrylics on wood base

    Size: about 26” tall x 14” wide x 7.5 “ deep

    She is based on the Mississipian Culture, or Mound Builders, from about 1,500 years ago to about 800 A.D.

    Her clothing and Finery is historically correct. I was fortunate to have the Resident Archeologist of the mound builders exhibit in Spiro, Oklahoma, help me with the research in to the background of this figure.The exception is that the males of the Mississippian’s wore all the fun and impressive regalia-so- I have taken the artistic liberty of bestowing all of it on to this female figure. While Cahokia was the trade and ruling Center, Spiro was to the Mound Builders more of the spiritual center. Note on the back of her Copper head dress the equidistant cross in a circle and the power symbol of the eye in the hand on the front of the headdress.The white dress itself is an exact copy of a sketch made at the site of dig. The little white Sea shells on her armband were used as we use money today to purchase what our hearts desire.

    Size: about 29.5” tall x 15” wide x 13” deep

    At the beginning of the Bronze Age on a mountainous island in the Mediterranean now called Crete arose an elaborate civilization the so-called Minoans. Their religion was most likely polytheistic and matriarchal; their politics involved no warfare and thus allowed for all efforts to be directed toward developing commerce via trade routes to Egypt, Asia and Africa. Their culture was very sophisticated which is evident in the beautiful objects of art, architecture and seemingly utter delight in daily life.

    Archeologists discovered in a stone lined pit a small faience statuette of a Snake Goddess. This little clay figurine serves well as an example of Cretan art, combining the two dominant characteristics of grace and naturalism.

    I remember admiring one of those statues at the Natur Historische Museeum in Mainz, Germany when I was a very young girl- obviously it made a large impression with its utter grace, multi colors and the very foreignness of its countenance.

    I had so much fun interpreting my own version in clay and multiple glazes. It was important to keep the historical look authentic without simply copying, I made the eyes a little softer and the cat on her headdress more defined her figure a little less voluptuous. I hope she can bring as much of a sense of joy to you as she did for me.

    HANNAH’S PRAYER IV
    $ 650.00

    Medium: stone ware clay, multiple glazes, acrylics & gold luster

    Size: life sized & wall mounted

    Hannah’s name means “Graciousness”. In Hannah we meet the mother of Jewish spirituality. Her prayer is the only woman’s prayer recorded in the Old Testament. In the days of Hannah’s life the sanctuary was primarily used for blood sacrifice. Her prayer marked a profound shift in Hebrew prayer and ritual. Hers was a prayer of the heart, a prayer devoid of theological boundaries or liturgical convention. She knew instinctively that ceremony and slaughter were no substitute for one’s presence in spirit. With focused intention, she merges with the Divine by entering in to an altered state of mind.

    Hannah, being barren and very bitter about it, pleads with God to allow her to conceive a child. She promises to dedicate the child to the service of God. The priest Eli witnesses her prayer and encourages her to go home in peace. Hannah conceives and she and her husband Elkanah dedicate the child in due time to God and they bring the boy to the priest Eli to be taught all the ways of serving God. It is told that God was gracious to Hannah. She conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile her son Samuel grew up serving God.

    It was satisfying for me to create her image in this face sculpture. Her eyes are turned inward as she enters in to this altered state of mind where prayer becomes truly significant. Her countenance is humble; a smile plays around her lips as she feels that God is hearing her prayer. She was a powerful woman in her gentle unassuming way and a worthy role model to all of us.

    $ 750.00

    Medium: stone ware clay, multiple glazes, acrylics & gold luster

    Size: life sized & wall mounted

    Zipporah, wife of Moses, sister in law of Aaron & Miriam. Zipporah the woman whom scholars still argue over- whether she was Nubian, Ethiopian or Egyptian. I felt free to portray her as I wished – Nubian. Zipporah is also known as the woman who stood up to God. Bizarre is typical of how biblical scholars describe the tale of Zipporah and her husband Moses.

    The gist of the so called Zipporah/Moses story is this: As Moses, Zipporah and their two sons set out to Egypt to free his people from slavery, God appears to them and sought to kill Moses (it is nowhere exactly clear why the lord was so angry with Moses to wish to kill him). So- Zipporah took a piece of flint, grabbed her son and cut off his foreskin and placed it at God’s feet and said to God: “Surely a bridegroom of blood art thou to me” God then spared Moses and let them go on their way. Then as now no scholar is sure what Zipporah meant, however it appears God did.

    There is some speculation that it was not clear whether Zipporah placed the foreskin at God’s feet, or her husbands or her sons; further speculation posit that since the cutting away the foreskin (circumcision) identifies Hebrews, according to God’s covenant with Abraham; she might thus have shown that her son or sons are Hebrew and that Moses did not fail God in marrying a non-Hebrew.

    The Old Testament is full of the most extraordinary stories, I never tire to read and be inspired by them.

    It appears that in our present culture the one doing Philosophy will have to do so for the sheer love of it - he or she will most likely be rather poor in financial resources as well as in admiration from others. To be able to think and search for explanations or to formulate fresh questions about what is, what might be, or what ought to be is not seen as anything of interest - better to watch TV and wear the right clothes...

    She was a woman of profound influence in ancient Israel. Her story is to be found in the Book of Judges, which chronicles a chaotic and corrupt era, under a ruthless King Jabin of Canaan and his commander Sisera.

    "Now Deborah, a prophetess, a woman of flames, judged Israel at that time...."
    ( Judges: chapter 4)

    She controlled the Israelites armed forces under Barak and directed the defeat of the canaaite army led by Sisera. " The journey that you take shall not be for your glory, for Yahweh will deliver Sisera into the hands of a woman."
    ( Judges 4:8.9)

    And this is where the story gets more powerful and telling of women's potential for cold hearted, passionate and bloodthirsty revenge equal to any man's. Yael wife of Heber, through the most devious trickery killed Sisera in her tent, with a hammer and a tent peg, as Deborah had prophesied.

    "...And the Country had peace for forty years." ( Judges: chapter 5) In modern times, Deborah would be called controlling, a know it all. And Deborah was. A general's job is to be controlling and she was a general. A prophetess is a know it all. And she did. Deborah was like "...the sun when it emerges in all it's strength."
    ( Judges 5:31)

    Her power seems alien to me, even so-, passionate I modeled her to show the fierceness of her speaking and the warrior like aspect of her very being. Deborah was more than mortal, she was mythic.

    "Now Dina, Leah’s daughter by Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land". Genesis: Chapter 14

    Dina’s violent story starts when her family moves back to Canaan. "Now Dina, Leah’s daughter by Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land." (Genesis 34:1).

    Shechem, son of Hamor, and prince of the land was so ‘taken’ with her that he forced himself on her (i.e. raped her). She has been accused by rabbinic commentators of ‘gallivanting’ and being a ‘gadabout’ – basically being accused of having ‘asked for it’ not so very different from accusations of rape-victims of our own time. When her father, Jacob, hears of the rape he kept silent neither did he take any action, Leah, Dina’s mother, is inexplicably absent in the story. The story does tell of Dina’s brothers reaction clearly. Simon and Levy reacted to the rape of their sister thus: "Should our sister be treated like a whore?" (Genesis 34:31). Simon and Levy proceeded to take revenge so terrible as to surpass even the "eye for an eye" and "tooth for a tooth" the standard of retribution set in the bible. They annihilated an entire community.

    In an astonishing reversal the attacker’s lust turned to love and he asked his father “get me this girl as my wife!” In the Torah as well as in many countries of the Arab world today, a rapist was and is vindicated if he marries his victim. One does wonder how Dina might have felt-did she fall in love as well? Yet another didactic value of the story is: a warning that Hebrews were not to trust the peoples among whom they live and that women needed to be restricted in order to be safe. Dina was a tragic heroine.

    I have portrayed Dina thus: She is beautiful in an unconventional way – She has thrown back the veils that ought to cover her She squints as she looks back to whence she has come and then turns toward her future – She perhaps reinvents herself –Her name is on her veil – has it been thrown back as well? Her brothers names live in the twelve tribes of Israel – hers does not –

    …all that she carries are the twelve marks on her earrings as well as the twelve squares in her veils design. Her hair tumbles in all its rich glory, out from under her veil for all to see -

    Music is much like a conversation with our ancient soul, that we are compelled to share with others.

    …she listens to the guiding of her internal music, she hums the melody; when she understands with her brain what her soul tells her she will, perhaps, use the poets words and compose combined with the melody to share her feelings in form of song. She, perhaps, composes a larger representation of her music for many instruments or she might use her body in movement to express those emotions that are so elusive. This then is the Muse of Music. This is the realm in which the composer and the choreographer move.

    The triangle on the sculptures forehead is a symbol of Eternity out of which inspiration flows as if in drops of pure gold.

    What a complex relationship between Isaac and Rebecca. Isaac and Rebecca were the only absolutely monogamous couple in Genesis. Isaac;they were complementary but opposite in character. Isaac was a meditator and Rebecca had clarity of vision.

    Her pregnancy with twin sons was a nightmare, in gut wrenching despair she called to God, he answered her directly and said: “ There are two nations in your womb…the elder will serve the younger.”It was then that Rebecca understood that her son Jacob’s leadership had to be insured. Rebecca intervened as Isaac prepared to give his soul’s blessing to his favorite son Esau. Thus Jacob received the necessary blessing and so became the father of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

    As you know- Rebecca carried the burden of having to betray her husband, wounding her son Esau and sending her beloved son Jacob away to fulfill his destiny, never to see him again.

    Rebecca, not Isaac, was the dynamic force in the second generation. The divine plan was revealed to her and the responsibility for carrying it out rested on her shoulders alone. Rebecca never hesitated. Her decisiveness determined destiny.

    Medium: stone ware clay, multiple glazes, acrylics & gold luster

    Size: life sized & wall mounted

    More girls have been named for Sarah than for any other woman in the Bible.  Her majestic name has been given to her by God himself as he chose her to be the mother of the Jewish people.  “Sarai (Princess) shall no longer be called Sarai but Sarah (Chieftainess) I will bless her and give her a son.  I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations, and rulers will issue from her.” (Genesis 17:15 – 16)

    What interests me on Sarah is her multifaceted personality, her powerful self awareness her absolute loyalty to Abraham and her people.  She is described as wife, equal partner, best friend and accomplice in many endeavors political and otherwise, a woman of enormous spirituality.  It is speculated that she had influence and power in her own right as a high priestess of the Goddess cult in Ur and Haran, and she carried herself throughout her life with a confident authority.

    This version is from the time Sarah was given to the Pharaoh- hence the expression-

    Imagine all of this in a woman over four thousand years ago---amazing!

    Size: about 19” tall x 17” wide x 14” deep

    Dream Scapes is blatantly Jungian in motive and subject matter. I used this face sculpture to portray the state of being when dreaming or meditating. The dreaming we do when the subconscious speaks to us. If we listen and observe the inner self will make itself known. We may find answers to our questions; find revelations of what might be puzzling to us in the waking state. In that lovely& at times terrifying world we find that which some of the symbols suggest: the triangle on her pendant stands for Eternity. The woman has taken off her mask; it’s not needed in this world of the mind and very soul. Here she must be her absolute self. Here she goes to find pieces of herself not yet known to her. The spiral is used in all cultures since pre-history; it is powerful in its meaning. The spiral represents the endless and ever more enriching path of self discovery and spiritual exploration. The bindings at her throat and around her face show the withdrawn state of mind necessary for dwelling in the internal stillness. The recurring image of fertility is the egg.You will notice the snake having apparently come through the hole from deep within, the meaning of the snake is many fold, regeneration is one, wisdom and power of healing another. The snake may also be seen as something frightening when it is denied and locked away deep within the subconscious-yet when we are brave and allow our self to let that which is unknown to come out, we might find it not only benign but very beautiful and enriching to us. You will also see the signs for water as well as the moon phases, gleaned out of mythology as was and is to a lesser degree of great import to humans.

    Size:  life sized, about: 17” tall x 16” wide x 7.5 “wide

    This sculpture is based purely and unabashedly on the theory of C.G. Jung’s Collective Archetypes. I will simply state that in the unconscious of everyman there is hidden a feminine personality the ANIMA, and in that of every woman a masculine personality the ANIMUS.

    A man therefore has in him a feminine side, an unconscious feminine figure-a fact of which he is generally unaware; the opposite is true of women. These two major archetypal figures appear in dreams as well as in the collective mythologies of all people. As an individual, say a woman, you can easily recognize the voice of the Animus. It’s the one that says” you are so incompetent, you cannot possibly accomplish that or this, you are so ugly, always have been etc. For a man it’s the Animathat gives those terribly paralyzing statements. There is some good news about having this Anima and Animus to content with and it is this: In a well individuated person, male or female, this archetype is recognized inthe active conscious mind and can now be of great benefit in our lives.
