As I try to understand myself and the universe I am drawn time and again to symbols to help me explain it all. Yin and Yang, male and female, sun and moon.

"By depicting fertile and regenerative symbols, I create imagery that speaks of basic human energy."
- Reni Packer

"The symbol is the primitive exponent of the unconscious, but at the same time an idea that corresponds to the highest intuitions of the conscious mind"
- C. J. Jung

There is no line between the 'real world' and 'world of myth and symbol.' Objects, sensations, hit with the impact of hallucination.
- William S. Burroughs


"Art is the aesthetic ordering of experience to express meanings in symbolic terms."
- Daniel Bell
