*Antidote: a medicine given to counteract poison or relieve suffering.
“The artist has at all times been the instrument and spokesman of the spirit of his age.” (CW 15, p. 75, 1931) Carl Gustav Jung
Two women painters, Georgia O’Keeffe, preeminent Modern American artist, and Ciel Bergman, Post-Modern artist and environmentalist, express the importance of place, nature, time, and death in their works, both creating significant bodies of work in Northern New Mexico. Bergman addresses climate change in her work and our human need for deep beauty. Her series of “Antidotes” began as a response to during our tumultuous political times, radical change, and eruptions of human violence throughout our country and the world.
Through the lives of these two women painters we learn to better appreciate the enormous tension carried by the artist on behalf of the collective.
