"Beyond Fear" by Andrew Smart


From the beginning of time, humankind has created symbols and stories to both explain the world around us, and to give life to the landscapes of our dreams and imaginings. From Jung’s archetypes, to ancient gods and goddesses, to fantastical creatures and places that exist only in the mind’s eye, artists from all disciplines explore the realms of dreams, fantasy and mythology. Their works play with the boundaries of reality and draw upon legends and symbols from cultures throughout the world.
