The Shadow Project

The Shadow Project is an ongoing investigation of the Jungian concept of shadow in and through artwork and the relationship between shadow and creativity.

In Jungian terms the shadow is seen as the “negative” side of the personality. This dark side of our psyche contains things we like to hide. . Expressive and creative work necessitates moving out of the conscious and into the unconscious and therefore encountering the shadow.Using shadow as a source for art work can leave the artist very vulnerable as the pieces expose their hidden side. This vulnerability, which I call “soul”, is I believe what creates strong art.
