Mission of the Master Work Series ~ help people find their balance through the process of reviving the Selfs Sweet Secret.
The The Speaking Subconscious : Selfs Sweet Secret video series and book teaches how to use the Master Work Series as a guide for working within while also learning the language of the subconscious.
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 way the subconscious speaks is often through a language of metaphor while working with archetypes from the collective unconscious.
“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
Archetypal images are used throughout the Master Work Series because of their metaphorical relationship with the collective unconscious. They can inspire the viewer to know their Self on deeper levels and in turn get to know humanity though the journey.
Magic of the Master Work Series & How it Began

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. For the first two paintings I chose to create in my own style, paintings that had inspired me since high school.

After that the inspiration behind the imagery for the rest of the Series is a bit hard to explain. Its hard to explain how the inspiration of the titles for each work arrived, including the title for the Series as a whole. It wasn’t until I started wondering about my experience that I began researching into the subconscious reasoning behind what I was painting, and then realized the power of the subconscious and the power that imagery, symbols, and language, can have on the subconscious.
The Master Work Series became a guide for learning the language of the subconscious.

Speaking with the subconscious can be like finding pieces to a puzzle without knowing what the puzzle looks like.
Revealing the puzzle involves exploring so much more than just your mind,
it involves a willing to work within.
Inner work can be done by a means of multiple ways. Of these ways an exploration into the archetypes can accomplish amazing things.
As life changes different archetypes will resonate while others may shift, yet all of have metaphorical messages to revive within the Self,
What are the Archetypes in the Series saying to you?
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.)
“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

Prints of the Master Work Series are coming soon.
