About The Artwork

‘Alchemy finds the collective unconscious’ In his chimerical search, the Alchemist exposes to himself, in images, the unsuspected content of his soul, thus realizing, without proposing this, a kind of reconciliation, between his superficial and individual vision and the amorphous force, which struggles to be configured, Of the 'collective unconscious'. Without a doubt the spiritual motive of the alchemical work is, in principle, more or less unconscious and seems to be hiding in the of the soul. But this care can not in any way, to be equated with the chaos of the so-called 'collective unconscious' at least as far as the apparent meaning of this elastic concept: The Alchemist's "spring" does not spring from unknown regions of the soul, if not better, of the same terrain that the spirit and its origin is hidden, it is not because it is under rational knowledge, but because it is above him. T. Burckhardt
