'Art, Memoir and Jung. Personal and Psychological Encounters' is published on the 27th October. It is a book about how we look at and 'see' art. It is about a two way process - about the fascinating relationship between the beholder and the art work.
'An intriguing series of self-portraits refracted through tender, sensitive meditations on art.' – Michèle Roberts
'As a film maker, Jungian analyst, and writer, Juliet Miller has been continuously engaged with images, and aspects of the intense interface between life and art. The events she narrates in this sensitive memoir provide the reader with an opportunity to meditate on certain crucial moments in life when an encounter with a work of art can psychologically mirror, accompany, or challenge us, providing a temenos for self-analysis and healing. Her book will be of interest to therapists, art-lovers, and the general public.' – Diane Finiello Zervas is an art historian and Jungian analyst with the Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists.
