ALCHEMY PRINTS

“Alchemy, as a nature philosophy of great consideration in the Middle Ages, throws a bridge to the past, the gnosis, and also to the future, the modern psychology of the unconscious. Only by discovering alchemy have I clearly understood that the Unconscious is a process and that ego’s rapports with the unconscious and his contents initiate an evolution, more precisely a real metamorphoses of the psyche.” Carl Jung

Phoenix 'Sitting in the Fire'.....The Phoenix is a mythical bird that consciously consumes itself in flames to be reborn new from its ashes. In Alchemy the phoenix bird represents the creation of the Philosopher’s stone from the transformative element of fire and the chemical of Sulphur. The symbology for me also describes the rising of the Divine Feminine in our modern day consciousness.
