[Session 4 of the Series: Art & the Archetype: A Deep Dive into the Collective Unconscious for Writers, Artists, and Artists of Life.] Have you ever wondered why visiting certain places or even viewing paintings of particular landscapes can leave you feeling energized and enthusiastic while others leave you feeling flat, claustrophobic, or depressed? In this session, mythologist Kathie Collins will present examples of the way different terrains influence the mythic imagination. From Homer’s Greece to the ice floes of the Inuit, we’ll look at the particular ways the art of a culture is stamped by and into the land from which it was born. We’ll also discuss the ways we as cultural creatives have been marked by our homes and, in turn, feel compelled to artistically reflect or reinvent our native landscapes.
