Perinatal Dreaming

A focus of my art work has been ‘Understanding Country’, as an Indigenous woman, a midwife and an artist, my appreciation of country is deeply embedded in my appreciation of the Divine Mother. When Australia was initially invaded it was described as “Terra Nullius” , empty land; as ignorant and unconscious as the Freudian nonsense that a baby is born a “Tabla Rasa” a blank slate.
My images have their origins in the Dreamtime, the practice of Dr. Stan Grof’s Holotropic Breathwork supported their emergence. I have also made 2 short film, one animated, relating my adventures through the Perinatal Realms of the Human Unconscious. Google Grof and Gieger if you have an interest in these dimensions of human consciousness. Good luck.
