Metapsychological Art

RecoverI- Prosaics and Mosaics -Welcome To My Mind was a collaboration between Scott and William Woods Higgins. Bill was Scott’s college Philosophy professor, friend and accomplished painter who developed a simple yet profound style which he describes:

(from the forward) “As art, it is a tribal art, a primitive tribal art, a statement about tribal archetypes, a study of symbology in its most concrete characters and figures, within the dimension of Self/self.

As a philosophy, it is speculative metaphysics; basing its hypothesis upon an anthropolo­gy of Spirit, the principal/principle that substantiates the pre-reflective, as well as, the reflective orders that substantiate the phenomenology of shapes and their order in one's life world. It is a phenomenological method of description and explanation about the continuum, both physical and psychical, which animates one's life world. The concep­tual delineation of Spirit.

As a psychoanalytic method, it is a method of self-portraiture of the individual complex­es of the self, that has the potential to form and express the relations of archetypes (shapes/ideas) within the collective unconscious Self.

As a religious experience, it is the linking back to the ancestral spirits so fundamental in the shaping of the Organic Order and the Human Order. Freud would call these shapes of self, "countless egos capable of being inherited by the id, while Jung would call these symbols the archetypes of the collective unconscious.
