This is one of the first images that Juno and I attempted to draw simultaneously,
without having any preconceived idea of what might appear. Drawing in
ink on a translucent parchment, each of us on either side of the table,
adding lines here and there until an overall gestalt appears. At that
point, Juno flips the parchment over and, on a light table, creates a
subtle coloring to emphasize the relevant features.
The Passionate Revelation
The Archaic Revival
To nurture our planet the wise woman reaches out to the Devic realm to co-create the New Reality.
The Night Journey
It is only by understanding and accepting the subtle points of the feminine
principle, that we advance into the galactic night.
Passages of Earth
Her body sprawls across time and space, a vast consciousness who holds
our collective destiny in her hands.
Evolution of Wisdom
It is axiomatic to say that it is the choices we make that shape our
lives and our realities. As spiritual beings in a material world we need
the deepest experience of both the darkness and the light to evolve to
higher levels of consciousness.
Piercing the Veil
In this, our fourth graphic in this series, we approached it with a rather
clearer concept of what we wanted to explore. A young woman, full of creative
potential, steps confidently into a new world replete with choices and
not without its dangers. Can she sustain the vision while the species
is transforming itself? Like The Fool in the Tarot deck, stumbling trustingly
into the unknown, will she slip on the mossy stones and fall into the
jaws of something far worse?
It remains the most mysterious of processes as to where these images come
from. In any close collaboration it becomes increasingly difficult to
establish who exactly contributes what. This becomes even more challenging
when there is no clear preconception of what we are trying to say with
the image. But allowing the image to speak for itself, to grow organically,
each of us focussing on what we like to do best, a deeper truth emerges.
Re-enchanting the World
The second in our series of visual explorations of female power, our graphic
suggests that it is only by acknowledging and working with the female
energy, in both seen and unseen forms, that we will bring the Earth back
Falling Into Time
Having realized that we can work on the same images, that our drawing
styles, though very different, are compatible enough to produce a coherent
final result, we started in on our first large graphic. Since we live
in different parts of the world, we had to achieve this by sending the
piece back and forth, each of us adding to the overall picture. As the
image emerged and it started taking on a deeper meaning, we both felt
we were embarking on a graphic exploration of the emerging female energies.
