Psyche in Art

When I started painting I was fascinated by the process of projecting unconscious content and finding it to be meaningful. Early in my work I realized that psychological insight was often followed by the spontaneous solving of artistic problems. The psyche is alive!

I discovered that the images appearing before my mind’s eye will continue to develop and unfold in unexpected ways if I would only listen and I found that the unconscious was even feeding me at times artistic assistance. Even when I worked from photographs the process and my approach remained exactly the same.
