In my video: Actor William H. She is a clinical psychologist in Los Angeles, specializing in trauma recovery, fertility and creative artist issues. I have had the privilege to interview her several times, and we share a number of interests in how people can better access their creative talents.
It is at first an unconscious side. It is only through effort to become self-aware that we recognise our shadow. Although many infer the shadow is. Beneath the social mask we wear every day, we have a hidden shadow side: an impulsive, wounded, sad, or isolated part that we generally try to ignore.
Arutt talks about the concept of the Shadow Self that psychologist Carl Jung addressed in his therapy and writings. She notes that our emotional health and balance, perhaps especially for artists, may depend on having some understanding and acceptance of the darker or less comfortable sides of ourselves — and doing this also gives us more power to make aware choices rather than just react to life unconsciously. A number of actors confirm that idea, saying they are drawn to a role because they feel a strong personal connection with the emotional aspects of that character and story.

Diamond talks about some of the shadow emotions we may have learned to disown or stifle. But anger can also motivate constructive and creative behavior. Anyone who stood up to him ended up dead.

OSO version 0. What impressed me the most was not any individual piece of art, but rather his remarkably prolific output. Researchers have catalogued 26, pieces of art created by Picasso and some people believe the total number is closer to 50, When I discovered that Picasso lived to be 91 years old, I decided to do the math. Picasso lived for a total of 33, days. With 26, published works, that means Picasso averaged 1 new piece of artwork every day of his life from age 20 until his death at age He created something new, every day, for 71 years.
His work became so famous and so numerous that, according to the Art Loss Register, Picasso is the most stolen artist in history with over works currently missing. What made Picasso great was not just how much art he produced, but also how he produced it. He co-founded the movement of Cubism and created the style of collage.
Thanks for reading articles - and for following these links. In fact, many of the spiritual and new age teachings out there provide an escape for those who do not want to be responsible for the entirety of themselves and their lives. Now I know. A negative or unempathic response can do more harm than good and only contribute to the shame spiral.

His first marriage was to a woman named Olga Khokhlova and they had one child together. The two separated after she discovered that Picasso was having an affair with a seventeen-year-old girl named Marie-Therese Walter.
He was 45 years old at the time. Picasso fathered a child with Walter, but moved on to other lovers a few years later.
He began dating an art student named Francoise Gilot in She was 23 years old. Picasso had just turned 63 at the time. Gilot and Picasso had two children together, but their relationship ended when Picasso began yet another affair, this time with a woman who was 43 years younger than him. After they separated, Gilot published a book called Life with Picasso , which revealed his long list of sexual flings and sold over one million copies.
Out of revenge, Picasso refused to see their two children ever again. Picasso's singular focus on art meant that everything else in life had to take a back seat, including his relationships and his children. Most humans have a primary relationship with their lover and maintain a variety of hobbies and interests during different periods. Picasso was the reverse. His primary relationship was with his art, while his lovers were like hobbies and passing interests, things he experimented with for a period here and there.
Some scholars believe Picasso's many relationships were essential to the progression of his art. The qualities that made Picasso one of the greatest artists of all-time may very well have made him a terrible life partner too.
