Archetypal images in contemporary art
Curated by Donna Willard-Moore
13 December – 19 January, 2020
Hidden Realms is about the systems of thinking we live inside. Some would call it culture or styles. Various histories and philosophies name and explain these styles and thinking structures; but you can often find longer threads linking to ancient history.
You can recognise the process of forming and passing ideas in literature and arts. These cultures shape choices about our lives based on limiting or expanding the possibilities open to us at a given time.
Carl Jung's archetypes are a good example of recurring themes or images in artists’ works. Perhaps it would be better to call it ‘What they are on about’ or later in their careers, 'what they are known for'.
A grouping of artworks reveal the presence of this hidden realm; a cultural system we think of as normal. However, new ideas create new art, culture, new thought forms, and new insights. Art has begun to signal a cultural change; thus artworks often signal world changes.
Join us at the opening event and discover what realms you think about and enjoy and the hidden ones that will be new and fun discoveries.

Gallery talks on Saturday 14 December:
10am Dr Graeme Welch: Graeme’s artwork provides the opportunity for viewers to examine the human condition. He is an artist who goes beyond simple realism, pushing his art in a new direction that examines topical issues on personal, literary and mythological sources presented in modern-day settings.
1pm Ingrid Vercammen: ‘Where there is respect for women there will be the presence of the Divine. The world is in chaos and the use of masculine and feminine energy is out of balance. The need to restore the balance is a must for mankind and the planet to survive.’
We look forward to seeing you all.
