Mystery Writing December 12

Cynthia Kirkwood

India ink on paper


15 x 22 in.

Cynthia Kirkwood’s visual language of energetic colour, automatic drawing and nature-geometry is alive in that realm where the personal, the collective and the universal are in easy correspondence. In Carl Jung’s words, this is the Collective Unconscious.

The story is the conversation. With oneself. With one another. All together in continual flow we are this Luminous Constellation. Here we are. And to be alone and draw, paint, write: here is my gesture of Witness. My Offering. My thread in the universal conversation. The mystery writing comes in automatically. And the paintings expand from drawings into colour, with colour leading the way.
