For many artists, the “what-to-paint-dilemma” is, at best, haunting and at worst, it threatens to derail our creative pursuits altogether. Fortunately, we can find answers and inspiration in one of the unlikeliest places—in what Carl Jung calls a “confrontation with the unconscious.”
In letting go of conventional methods of thinking about what to create, Betsy Cook’s experience has instead led her to surrender to a process that can best be understood as an excavation of sorts—a diving into the depths that characterize the unconscious.
With this presentation, we will discuss Betsy’s creative approach, using examples from her work to share her personal “confrontation with the unconscious.”
Materials and inspiration will then be offered up to audience members, encouraging them to have a taste of creating likewise.
Betsy Cook, an INFJ Libra sun, Pisces Moon & Virgo rising, is an artist of many passions. In addition to cooking, as her name implies, her loves include: color, texture, encaustic mixed media collage, calligraphy, fibers, knitting, crocheting plastic bags, chocolate making, designing inspired interiors, baking, sewing, embroidery, oil painting, mosaic-making, flower essences, Kabala, yoga, Jungian analysis, MBTI, shih tzus, tandem cycling and her 8th grade sweetheart whom she married 40 years ago. She is a mother of two, grandmother of one, and a full-time artist who makes her work and home in Hallowell, Maine and Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
