Introduction to the articles from Art and Psyche, Sicily

Ami Ronnberg

The following two articles are part of our Art and Psyche series. They were originally presented at the third Art and Psyche conference, which took place in Sicily, 2015. We decided to publish them together since their titles both introduce a perspective of dreaming in art making, they both deal with the mystery revealed in the natural world and seeing art through psyche. Colette, the artist in Sarah Berry Tschinkel’s article creates rich, sensuous visions of her persona. Jennifer Pazienza reflects on her art work through  memory and landscapes, inner and outer. For both, beauty is an integral part of their work.

Sarah Berry Tschinkel is a Jungian analyst living in New York City. Jennifer Pazienza is a painter living in New Brunswick, Canada.
