Painting from the unconscious is about something other than producing »beautiful« pictures. The goal of Jungian painting therapy is to enable the soul to express itself, and to initiate the process of healing oneself through painting and creating.
Based on ten impressive series of pictures, Ingrid Riedel and Christa Henzler argue that the colors and shapes of a painting have a diagnostic function, and can clarify psychological problems. Painting from the unconscious is primarily a therapeutic process, however, that engages with a personality’s creative self-formation and maturation.
