Possessing The Shadow


Possessing The Shadow -  Carl Jung wrote that the shadow is first of all the whole of the unconscious. This most certainly is sensible when we realize that the shadow is the great unknown. “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. Unfortunately, there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it. Furthermore, it is constantly in contact with other interests, so that it is continually subjected to modifications. But if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected.” 

We are Human, understanding that we have the capability for good, evil, greatness and failure and being conscientious of our remarkably diverse ways will place the mind at ease. Be aware of the virtuous & devilry within. 

Art Style: Corey Ceccarelli's artistic approach was completed through the effect of paint that was splattered and dripped onto the surface of the canvas. A technique that was widely recognized from the late Jackson Pollock.
