Art from Dreams: My Jungian Journey in Collage, Assemblage and Poetry

By: Susan Levin


Out of stock


In this book the poems and artworks by Susan Levin embrace the role of the unconscious mind as a creative force for self-awareness. She uses personal and archetypal images and symbols to create narratives of meaning and identity. Dreams, like collage/assemblage and poetry, derive their form and character from the aesthetics of juxtaposition – the placing of seemingly random images in proximity in a way that elicits a new level of meaning and understanding. In all three there is a role for intuition, a vested relationship to memory, a certainty that things are never only or entirely as they appear, and the presumption that everything carries with it a plurality of meanings. In the technique of assemblage particularly, commonplace, found, deracinated objects remain themselves even as they become something else. Like a dream, a work of art can reveal the hidden treasures of the mind.
