A collection of my feelings, thoughts, questions and reflections. Art gives me comfort and keeps me sane. I use art as means to explore humanity and at the same time understand myself better.

The heads of the people in this drawing were stitched and joined with threads of different colors to represent the intricate, multi-cultural aspect of our nation. I left the needle on the surface of the canvas, right on top of one of the persons with a white head. He's the one pulling the threads.

In Jungian psychology, the shadow may refer to (1) the entirety of the unconscious, i.e., everything of which a person is not fully conscious, or (2) an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not recognize in itself. Because one tends to reject or remain ignorant of the least desirable aspects of
one's personality, the shadow is largely negative. The Jungian shadow often refers to all that lies outside the light of consciousness, and may be positive or negative. "Everyone carries a shadow," Jung wrote, "and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is."
