The Artist's Style and the Handwriting of the Psyche
Presented by
Shirley Eisman, BFA, MFA

Art History reveals, regardless of time and culture, that the hand or style of the artist is inner directed.  A statement is made through the hand, the eye and the inner eye as well as the choice of compositional elements.  In viewing a work of art, consciousness of the process enriches the experience.  Together, we will compare and contrast these elements in the artists' life and work.

Shirley Eisman, BFA, MFA, Professor Emeritus, is a painter, printmaker, and a Resident Scholar at the C.G. Jung Study Center Of Southern California.  Her art has been exhibited in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.  The winner of juried prizes, her work is held in private collections in both the United States and Europe.

Sunday,  March 25th,  2012,  4:00 ~ 6:00 PM

Creativity and the Individual Psyche:
Art and Poetry - The Vision and the Word

Presented by
Barbara Blatt and Diana LaCom

This event will illustrate how two women explore their singular visions with both art materials and words.  Diana and Barbara, both painters and poets, will share and discuss how these two very different means of expression feed the creative process.  There will be readings from their collections of poems.  An exhibit of their artwork will be on display.

Barbara Blatt is an artist and poet.  A contributor to the recent publication of Dictionary of Symbols(ARAS), she continues to be a featured reader in many southland poetry venues.  She is an exhibiting artist represented by Gallery 825.  Her book featuring her poetry and art will be published soon.

Diana LaCom received her art training at Chouinard Art Institute.  An artist for over 50 years, her work is centered on images of the feminine in nature.  Her poetry evolved from her journal writing.  She has exhibited widely and her work is in many private and public collections.  Her teaching experience is now limited to working with adults in her studio, facilitating their creative imagination using art materials.

The Image: A Mirror of the Psyche
Presented by
Marion Anderson, JA

Jung's Red Book, with its intense psychic imagery, illuminates our understanding of the unconscious in a unique way.  For Jung, images represent a means of communicating information and expressing emotion as well as form a bridge between consciousness and the unconscious.  In this lecture we will investigate the importance of the image in the context of Jung's analytical psychology.  We will explore how Jung himself started to draw and paint images that later transformed into the Red Book, and focus on how Jungians across the world use painting of inner images in different therapeutic settings.  To conclude, Marion will share a case example from her experiences as an analyst working with drawn images.  

Marion Anderson, JA, is a clinical psychologist licensed in Brazil and a Jungian analyst living in Los Angeles.  A teaching member of the International Society for Sandplay Therapy, she first specialized in painting therapy in Germany.  She is an Associate Member of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles and is currently enrolled in the Clinical Psychology doctoral program at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
