Janus creates singular, subtly emotive sculptures that embrace the symbiosis
of anthropological myth and nature into a contemporary voice.
A visual bridge of cultures through the recognition of global similarities in ancient tales.
Stories that tap into a collective unconscious and engage our similarities rather than our differences.
THE MAIDS OF MER
The word Mer in ancient Greek definition is a combining
form meaning “member of a particular group”.
The maids never swim alone and are a secret,
ancient feminine society that is a safe haven.
The maids offer women the medicine of independence and
relief from the human world. During dream time a woman or
more rarely a man, regardless of age, will float, sensuously twist and
swim, unencumbered by physical ailments or pain,
debilitating mind-chatter of remembrances, cultural
restrictions and the desperation of loneliness. This world is
beyond a meditation and is rather a metaphysical collective
or meeting place.
