I’d recently purchased some gel pens at a warehouse store, and, in order to placate the pens’ desires to express themselves on some paper media, I set out upon drawing something new and random. I didn’t realize, however, that most of the pens have sparkling and metallic ink in them. I wasn’t seeking this kind of ink in the first place, but I just decided to roll with what I purchased and see what I could do with them.

This is the first drawing that I produced with those pens. You can’t really tell that the ink has sparkling and metallic qualities to it. I thought that the scanner would pick up these effects after scanning the drawing on to the computer. I’m not phased by this however. It’s basically the colors that I was after in purchasing the gel pens. After all, there are 100 pens included in the…

This image is derived from The Sutured Chimeroplasty. I wanted to use a background I’d created using shredded paper from a paper shredder, a piece of paper with tire tracks on it I found out in the street, and some torn up magazine pictures, along with my newly created Microchimerism.

Then I selected hollowed out portions of The Sutured Chimeroplasty and placed this template as a layer on top of the collage.

This process allowed for the collage to be seen through the spaces of where the hollowed out mosaic pieces were, hence enabling a more complex and layered appearance to the new image. There is a lot more to the image that I created these new effects in, but I found one particular area of that image interesting. So I…

Trina Merry body paints people to blend with their surroudings. Her models have been photographed near famous landmarks around New York City, including the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, Central Park, the Guggenheim Museum and the iconic towers of downtown Manhattan.
“Bodypaint creates a special connection to a person that other visual art forms have trouble accomplishing; it’s a distinctly human experience.” Merry says she came up with the idea for the series after moving to New York from the San Francisco area this year.

دولة داعش التي تقام اليوم على مساحات واسعة ما بين سوريا والعراق لا بد أنها أول ما تذكرنا به هو تلك السنين السوداء من تاريخ المنطقة في نهاية أربعينات القرن الماضي. فنشأة داعش تتشارك مع نشأة إسرائيل بأربعة عناصر جوهريّة تجعلهما ترجمتين لمشروع واحد. ما هي هذه العناصر الأربعة؟

Jung himself where he talks about the Anima.

Male Shadow Triangle

Thomas Moore and Douglas Gillette adopted and extended Jung’s approach in their exploration of the masculine psyche by using the collective archetypes of the King, the Warrior, the Magician, and the Lover. Obviously those four male archetypes can be translated and mapped in female clusters of virtues, specific attributes associated with four major female archetypes: the Queen, the Mother, the Wise Woman and the (female) Lover found in history and  myths. This has been done before.

Jean Shinoda Bolen, a Jungian psychiatrist, published in 1984 “Goddesses in Every Women: A New Psychology of…
