Rudy Gutierrez’ musical art therapy

A Rudy Gutierrez painting of a guru and musicians in dynamic, multi-sensory, surreal style, shares features with ayahuasca and peyote art. Structuralist analysis against the universal archetype model, demonstrates a high level of integration between conscious, subconscious and natural or ultimate meanings. The main theme in Musicians is type 10 Teacher, including staffs (flower stalks, guitars), metal (trumpet, guitars), market, disc (halos, spirals), council (collage), ecology (plants), and school (choir ‘buds’).

Eugenia Loli’s Nirvana art peeks into a tower of subconscious revelation

Eugenia Loli’s surreal vision of maturing consciousness, subconsciously expresses about 83 of 100 currently known archetypal features, found in artworks of all cultures and all ages. Archetype does not evolve, and the cultural record does not evolve; but the idea of ‘progress’ is itself archetypal. Dense expression of certain archetypes is typical of art styled after ayahuasca, DMT and other hallucinogen visions, without the direct knowledge of the artist of the five layers of archetypal structure, as usual. here is the structuralist analysis, in the standard format, of how archetype finds its own expression in Loli’s Nirvana artwork. The ‘Three minutes’ in the title, is analogous to the three planes of space and time in cosmology; and the planes of consciousness of individual maturity.

Poussin’s Arques tomb; Archetype lives also in Arcadia

Some of Nicholas Poussin’s works are part of the Rennes area mysteries. His father was uncle of Baron Arques, and financial advisor to Couiza’s Duke Anne. Poussin painted two scenes of shepherds at a tomb with Virgil’s Roman epitaph, citing the proverbial Greek Arcadia with its annual fires as metaphor for afterlife, ending thus: “I have sung of pastures, country-sides and leaders, also in Arcadia I lived.” The last phrase became a popular epitaph, implying heaven and hell in life, and in afterlife. This post demonstrates archetypes in Poussin’s ‘Et in Arcadia ego’ painting.

Rennes le Chateau’s Sermon on the Mount mural is archetypal therapy

The back wall of St Magdalene church in Rennes le Chateau is dominated by a relief group of Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. Abbe Sauniere had contracted artists from Italy to paint commercial casts of statues, dictating some background scenes and revisions, apparently to transpose Biblical episodes into a localised landscape ‘sermon’. Archetypes in the relief group artwork are listed, and compared to three other Sermon artworks (by Gustav Dore, Bloch, and another), in this article from Stoneprint Journal 6.
