ART   Viewing the Soul as a Painting

Viewing visionary art, the term Jung (1933) coined for art based on the inner vision of the imagination, teaches us how to create and view a painting as a window to the soul. Art in this sense is a way to see and see through the soul. The website Seeing Through Art focuses on and sees through a specific line that Jung gave toward the end of The Red Book when Elijah asserted, “I do not like this [the soul’s] multiplicity. It is not easy to think it” (p. 547). In response Jung declared: “It [soul] is not to be thought; it is to be viewed. It is a painting.” This website is an exploration of how to create and view the soul through the many brushstrokes of a painting to overcome Elijah’s “old and ingrained mistake, that the one excludes the many” and that thinking is exclusive of viewing.

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

 “In everyone some kind of artist is hiding. Among savage peoples this is evident from the fact that the warrior decks his spear with feathers or paints his shield. In our mechanized world this urge for artistic creation is repressed by the one-sided work of the day and is very often the cause of psychic disturbances." C. G. Jung
