Mission & Magic Behind the Master Works

Mission of the Master Work Series ~

help guide in remembering the Selfs Sweet Secret.

The Speaking Subconscious : Selfs Sweet Secret

video series and book

teaches how the Master Work Series can be used as a guide.

(Coming this Autumn 2023)

What is the Selfs Sweet Secret ?

It’s something that’s been shielded by various names, descriptive metaphor and even allegories throughout the centuries.

It’s something that cannot possibly be explained it in its entirety through the construct of language.

It’s also something that is and has always been.

Though it may be forgotten,

it can be known again from within

by remembering.

Of the various guides available to help in such a task,

the Master Work Series is one in which

working within revives a

conscious communication with the subconscious,

a place where the Selfs Sweet Secret can be remembered.

Magic Behind the Master Works

What seems like magic can often be a misunderstanding of the mysterious and the magic behind how the Master Works work is actually not magic at all, but something far more great and powerful, it’s

Our Own Natural Inner Nature.

The collective unconscious is defined by the American Psychological Association as, “the part of the unconscious that, according to Carl Jung, is common to all humankind and contains the inherited accumulation of primitive human experiences in the form of ideas and images called archetypes and manifested in myths as well as other cultural phenomena (e.i., religion) and in dreams. It is the deepest and least accessible part of the unconscious mind.”1


However, the collective unconscious is not the least accessible part of the mind. . . .

The subconscious speaks an exotic language that often uses archetypes and metaphors with symbols and color to communicate. It’s tailored to our individual experience but also provides a connection to the collective.

Archetypal images are used throughout the Master Work Series because of their metaphorical relationship with the collective unconscious and the process of the collective human journey. They can inspire the viewer to know their Self on deeper levels through exploring the archetypes that resonate within their own subconscious,and in turn get to know humanity though the journey.

“The fact is that archetypal images are so packed with meaning in themselves that people never think of asking what they really do mean.”~Carl Jung

Master Work Series, One – Ten

How the Series Began

Balance in progress, 2017; inspired by George Stubbs: Horse Devoured by a Lion, 1763, and a picture of my painted ceiling tile from a High School Senior Project, 2005

I did not know what I was doing when I started painting Balance in 2017 and had not intended to create a series. I just let go and went with the flow. The first two paintings began by a following a will to re-create paintings that I had been inspired by since high school.

Revival in progress, 2017, inspired by Henri Fuseli: Nightmare 1781

After that though, the inspiration behind the imagery for the rest of the Series is hard to explain, including the inspiration behind the titles for each work and the title for the Series itself. It may be best stated that the Series is of the collective unconscious and therefore can be beneficial in understanding inner reality which is foundational for a balanced creation of the outer world we perceive.

Diptych Together We Are One; Work Transformed Creation in progress, 2019

It was not until I started researching into the subconscious reasoning behind what I was painting that I began to realize the power of the subconscious, in addition to the power that imagery, symbols, and language, can have on the subconscious.

“A picture paints a thousand words in an instant, after all, and symbolism can represent many different concepts all at once, with the use of form and colour.”~Phillip Langdon

What are the Archetypes

in the Series saying to You?

See where the archetypes

that attract and resonate lead too ~

In sharing the Series as the guide that is and continues to be for me,

it is my wish that it can be of

Service to You and to Humanity.

The Master Work Series began unintentional and evolved into functional art that, like the intentions of pieces to a puzzle, connect and serve a united purpose; a journey into reviving the Selfs Sweet Secret and so much more.

(There will be 22 paintings when the Series is complete.)

Exhibitions of the Master Work Series will be in free spaces where anyone can visit!

Prints of the Master Work Series are coming soon.
