ART-BASED RESEARCH   Bringing Visions to Life

“In such a case the drawing is invaluable. It concretizes; it makes a statement so that other people can see it. It is there in reality as if painted on the wall” (p. 4). “One of the reasons why I let people make drawings is that it helps their imagination. The picture in a dream leaves rather a fleeting impression which soon vanishes, but when you make a drawing of it, it remains in your mind or in your field of vision, and that gives you a chance at more associations, more context” (p. 38). This process brings the vision to life and teaches through the images and the collective wisdom of the unconscious, putting together the pieces into a whole.

“Paintings are but research and experiment. I never do a painting as a work of art, All of them are researches.”

Pablo Picasso
