Agnes Grochulska: Archetypes

COMMUNITY GALLERY

What does a face say about one's character? Artist Agnes Grochulska considers this in her new series entitled Archetypes. According to famed psychologist Carl Jung, humans have a universal character, or archetype, within them. There are twelve primary types, and each one has its own set of values, meanings, and personality traits. They are the Sage, Innocent, Explorer, Ruler, Creator, Caregiver, Magician, Hero, Outlaw, Lover, Jester, and Everyman. Grochulska explores the relationship between her perceptions of these traits and those of her viewers. The artist painted a portrait, interpreting how each character type appears in her own imagination. She challenges the viewer to navigate the portraits to see if their own ideas match those of the artist.
