Statement:
Carl Jung was a pioneer in the exploration of the unconscious mind. Dreams, fantasies, myths and free associations were some of his tools of exploration. Calming his mind and allowing thoughts and fantasies to rise up to consciousness were part of the process. MINDWORKS are drawing meditations, images rising from the unconscious mind.

Others have explored similar processes: Max Ernest with collage and frottage; Odilon Redon who could not abide a blank white surface, made smudges and saw a butterfly wing; Dubuffet who often began a canvas not knowing whether it would be a cow, a table or a person; Leonardo da Vinci who urged us to look at clouds and stains on the walls and read into them faces, animals and battle-scenes.

MINDWORKS are a process of discovery, art put to the service of self-realization for the artist as well as the viewer.

Bio / Resumee / Statement:
MINDWORKS Art, a Spiritual Journey
Since the early 1950’s I have been continually involved with visual arts: BA degree from Pennsylvania State University, fine arts major; MA degree from Columbia University, Teachers’ College, fine arts major; Parsons School of Design, advertising curriculum; Brooklyn Museum of Art, oil painting with Reuben Tam; extensive professional experience in textile design, packaging design graphics, corporate identity programs, and finally teaching textile/surface design graphics for industry for 22 years at the Fashion Institute of Technology (State University of New York) in New York City. While at FIT, in collaboration with a fellow faculty member, Dorothy Wolfthal, we wrote the department textbook: Textile Print Design, Fairchild Publications,1987.

In 1991 I was awarded Best-in-Show for Metamorphosis (Gallery 1) at the Peekskill,NY Armory Exhibition. Moving to Florida in 1997 I have been fortunate to have exhibited in numerous art venues including: a group show at the Rosemary Court Gallery in Sarasota, Intuitive Art, The Artist as Shaman in 2000; a one-man show at the Amy Adams Gallery in Ft. Pierce, 2000; a one-man show at the J.Rose Gallery in Ft. Pierce, 2004; a two-man at the LoPressionism Gallery in Melbourne, 2006; a three-man show in the Gallery at Avalon Island in Orlando 2008, and a one-man show at Florida Outsourcing Inc 2009, also in Orlando. I have exhibited five times at the Vero Beach Art Museum, Art by the Sea Exhibitions--two awards: 3rd place for digital art in 2007, and 3rd place in Mixed Media in 2009; and finally, two group shows at Gallery14 in Vero Beach, Small is Big 2008 and 2009. In June of 2009 I joined The Art Gallery of Viera, a co-op gallery of 26 artists and a gala opening June 19 & 20th 2009.

In the 1970's I began to develop my own unique approach to art and the creative processes. At the core of this work are drawing meditations--images rising from the unconscious mind. With the advent of sophisticated computer and print technology I shifted from paint and brush to digital art on the computer. Inspired by Carl Jung, (the psychology of the mind), Anton Erhnesweig (the education of vision), Leonardo da Vinci (on creativity), and by artists such as Hieronymous Bosch, William Blake, Odilon Redon, Giorgio Morandi to name few, I continue to explore the unconscious mind and to draw forth MINDWORKS imagery.



Activities:
MINDWORKS images begin as drawing meditations and then are scanned into Adobe Photoshop program on a Mac computer. These images are then modified, enhanced, altered digitally and prepared for printing, currently on canvas. They are then further modified with glazes and varnish, mounted on backing-board, framed and ready to hang.

Many MINDWORKS images have been published by http://lulu.com
Books measure 8.5x8.5 inches with 60 full-color images in each book.
