MERMAIDS AND WATER SPIRITS

The mermaids evolved from Pont-Aven, Brittany in finding ways to participate with this location. Having been influenced by my coastal surroundings and by the Breton culture, I've become interested in the myths of the mermaid and water spirits.

 

The myth, reality and shape of the mermaid and her fragmented identity draw me to this subject. My challenge as a mediator is to suggest how the reality of these myths might apply to life experiences.

 

In considering the psychology and stories behind mermaids, I've tried to push the breaking up and piecing together of elements that confirm or suggest the physical existence and emotional battle of this mythical creature.
