Artwork Description

A light filled pool deep in the Bundanoon Gorge. This painting is about catharsis and purification - introversion of the conscious mind into the deeper layers of the unconscious psyche. The entrance to the underworld. The title is a reference to Nekyia… a rite by which ghosts were called up and questioned about the future. "…the Nekyia is no aimless or destructive fall into the abyss, but a meaningful katabasis ... its object the restoration of the whole being" Carl Jung
