IF THIS IMAGE SPEAKS TO YOU …. KEEP ON READING TO FIND OUT WHAT IT MAY MEAN… PART OF A COLLECTION OF SILK & DYE WORKS BASED ON MARI*, C.JUNG, J.CAMPBELL… PSYCHOLOGICAL SYMBOLIC , COLOUR AND ESOTERIC MEANINGS BEHIND THEM – WITH AN EXTRACT FROM THE ACCOMPANYING WRITINGS. ( artwork and writings copyright Tilly Campbell-Allen 2011 ) Generally, the writing is divided up into an intuitive response and feelings then more of an intellectual understanding behind the image, followed by some questions to consider.
.I walk through the crowds,ghostly and unseen. My questions run deep – they are fundamental and I silently call for rescue.I am depleted – emotionally disconnected and depersonalised – in this world,but not of it. I feel guilt,depression,shock, despair ..It all feels empty.
Yet,this emptiness, in truth, is the void of all potential -the matrix, still formless – I know,that I am always connected with The Divine and,that I am always profoundly one with my world and in my world,full of it’s magic and deep mystery. I can detach and release and allow my receptive subtle nature to bring clarity and balance,illuminating me from within. I am protected and can trust and walk in spirit and matter – this blank canvas of life is for my creation…this is my strength.
