SAMPLE ARTIST STATEMENT:

 

Thomas Greening, Ph.D.

 

 Psychotherapy resembles art in numerous ways. When I am involved in therapy with my patients, my goal is to free them from whatever negative psychological states that have evolved into their impediment to personal fulfillment and happiness, so that they can embrace Life as the affirming and defining force that it is. I am drawn to the idea that as I sculpt, I am not creating something that had not existed before, but with my tools I am liberating the form that heretofore had been hidden within the confines of the wood. Similarly when I explore with my patients their problems, at first nuances are revealed during our early sessions. Later, the reality of the quality of their existence emerges, and it is often grounded in depression. My acceptance of their psychological state, be it depression, mania, or anxiety, becomes part of me as I have chosen to engage them, and they, me, into their private worlds. With sculpture (and poetry) I am able to transform these acquired emotions into a form that can be shared with others. For me, this is one of the major functions of Art.

 

Tethered Flight

(Sculpture/assemblage, 12” x 12” x 16”)

 

This piece symbolizes the colorful psyche’s attempt to soar while attached to a dull wood base. I chose wood as my sculpting medium because it is a natural substance that Nature has provided for our use. While wood has a practical, tangible use for our prosaic needs, it also has a spiritual quality. My home is surrounded by wood in the form of trees and bushes. It is all around me whatever the time of day or my mood.
