'No tree can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.' Carl Gustav Jung
Artwork done for the Progressive Rock band Albinobeach albinobeach.bandcamp.com
In light of albinobeach's new album … The Ladder, the band performed a series of shows featuring their new material. The mini tour culminated in a live show at the GoodLuck bar in downtown Johannesburg's NewTown precinct.
The theme for the art follows the concept of their new album.
The artwork speaks to the understanding of the un-conscious and the conscious, the integration of the shadow help to inform the self.
I wanted the artwork to represent the idea of going deeper inward and the subsequent awakening as a result. I used 'found' imagery on the internet, using the collective unconscious to help create the artwork. I photo-comped Greek and Roman statues, radiolaria, atoms, fossils, sacred geometry and ancient technology.
