Self-insight / Self-awareness/ Self-adjustment

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. - Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island

An image which provokes you may represent an aspect of your past, present, or future. If you're struggling to understand why you're reacting, I may be able to offer insight by identifying the symbols and their hidden (and not-so-hidden) meanings.

I only work with non-traditional pieces; please don't ask me to do any Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, or Hopper. And most especially not the Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch...

I don't offer art interpretation in the traditional sense; for a better idea of how I approach an image, you can browse through the posts in A Not-so-spineless Escape. 

If you'd rather speak to me over the phone than have a written report, please book a session of Insight & Analysis.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. - Aristotle
