Larain Briggs

I am consistently motivated by investigating my psyche and the unconscious mind. It has been a lifelong journey, inspired by Carl Jung and previous to that Freud. I am simply compelled to create and have been since I can remember.

My objective is to access animus, the shadow, and the collective unconscious by painting, assemblage, digital art, and installation. I externalize the inner reality of my psyche transcending persona to connect with my true self where I hope to reconcile internal conflicts as Jung would have put it, ‘individuation’. Symbolism and archetypes are seen, perceived and related to.

I view myself as an intuitive, expressive and experimental artist. I explore various media to facilitate full articulation of my moods, memories and internal dialogues.

My recent work focused on my response to the landscape which developed into a series that reflected images of enlightenment and introspection.
