TREE OF LIFE 2022

 THE HIRONDELLES (SWALLOWS) CARRY THE NEW GOLDING THREAD 


Regard this new-formed golden token

Replacing the old thread frayed then broken

Held in the beaks of golden swallows

A circle of unity all this follows

Omphali centered with beads of gold

Alchemy’s mystery: Golden tree to behold.






24" diameter

Cotton threads and beads on antique linen







LOCKDOWN 2020/2021

 


12" Diameter

Cotton threads, beads and pearls on linen

Quoting CG Jung and his dismay of Europe's lockdown in WWII.




The swallows carry pearls of great price to our world

As even

"The spirit of the depths

have seized Mankind

demanding sacrifice..."

From CG Jung's Red Book
The "Incantations"

Oh
light of the middle way,
enclosed in the egg,
embryonic,
full of ardor, oppressed.
Fully expectant,
dreamlike, awaiting lost memories.
As heavy as stone, hardened.
Molten, transparent.
Streaming bright, coiled on itself.

--verse 52/53


We asked the earth.
We asked the heaven.
We asked the sea.
We asked the wind.
We asked the fire.
We looked for you with all the peoples.
We looked for you with all the kings.
We looked for you with all the wise.
We looked for you in our own heads and hearts.
And we found you in the egg.
-
-verse 59/60
