The founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung, wrote often of a phenomenon called the transcendent function, when two energies come together, there is often an emergence of a mysterious third, that holds both but is far greater than simply the sum of the two combined. Something like this happened when Kimberly Poppe’s photography collided with Deborah Anne Quibell’s poetry. The two artists share a quiet love for the contemplative path. They find that creativity naturally emerges when we connect to the deeper aspects of our being, and simultaneously acknowledge that those deeper and deeper aspects are revealed and accessed through their artistic endeavours.
In her meditative seascapes, most of Kimberly’s images are of places where there are tides, ocean, salt lakes, as they meet that time of day known as dusk, twilight or eventide. Created with a slow shutter and deliberate camera movement, the images combine the different elements of earth, water, air and fire. She hopes that her images give people’s minds the space to rest.
In her mystical poetry, Deborah’s words yearn to leave the same sense of spaciousness and rest. She seeks and longs for words that leave a residue on the heart, that do not teach anything but simply touch upon a truth that lies inside of us all. Wander through the images and words slowly. Perhaps, pieces of you are reflected or lay within them. Or perhaps, you share a similar longing for divine moments of captivation. From wherever you are, enter, and feel welcome.
