"Dark Continent"
Medium Date Framed Size Image Size
Oil Pastel/Ink 1991 21-1/4"H x 17-1/2"W 10"H x 7"W
A dark and exquisitely beautiful portrayal of a journey into an ephemeral inner world of mystery and discovery. Human, nebulous, dreamlike forms and bird imagery (birds which can see from a higher realm hold a different perspective and a broader vision), appear in the shadows. Below the “horizon” line, (possibly a separation of the conscious and the unconscious, or a separation between now and all that has preceded), lie monolithic representations of the profiles of the symbolically blindfolded human characters. It is a perception that “Dark Continent”’ may be Susan’s reference to the undiscovered places in our own inner worlds. Michael Babcock in his book "Susan Seddon-Boulet, The Goddess Paintings" pub. by Pomegranate Artbooks, describes this piece as also portraying Eurydice, "a goddess of feminine energy as transformative energy: she gives birth to souls, recognizing that black is the color of fertility and that all life begins in darkness. To embrace Eurydice is to accept our hidden dark side as the path to healing and wholeness".

When properly illuminated the piece exposes layers of detail, imagery and color. An important and powerful glimpse into an often difficult journey.

This original work has been re-framed with a custom rustic wood frame, archival triple-matted with a linen bottom & suede top mat, acid-free backer board & materials and re-glazed with museum Tru-Vue conservation UV protective glass. Signed by Susan Seddon Boulet bottom right. Dated 1991.
