In recent years, there has been considerable interest in the relationship between artistic and psychoanalytic practices. Both professions are viewed as highly creative, with spontaneity, improvisation and aesthetic experiences important to both. In this book, analysts who are also artists explore the relationship between art and analysis through reflections on their own artistic and clinical experiences. Drawing on artistic material from painting, poetry, choreography, photography, music and literature, the book casts light on what the creative processes in art can add to the relational psychoanalytic endeavour, and vice versa.
