Self-awareness through Art

     “It was as if, underneath the self I knew and was in public, there was another self, mysterious even to its owner, that lived beyond the grasp of explanation but would read (Graham) Greene’s works as if they were a private diary.”
      Pico Iyer, “The Man Within My Head” (2012)

      "Art is powerful preventive medicine. Looking at a picture is like walking through an endless series of doors, with each succeeding door leading us deeper and deeper into a rich experience. This journey stimulates our minds, our emotions, our souls; it makes us more alive. Ultimately the esthetic experience heals us and makes us whole."
     Robert Pope, "Illness and Healing, Images of Cancer" (1991)
