An exploration of the sublime through the power of suggestive
drawing trace towards the transformation of the self and the other.
As established in
my previous research on the transformative potential of drawing, I affirm that there exists a mutually conducive potential and influence that the interplay between the spiritual and the psychological in the drawing process bring about. Concluding, as a “self-object”, a drawing attainsits own ‘silent visual language’ replacing or assisting the role of the therapist, becoming pivotal in a transformative ‘interpersonal dialogue’. Jung (Miller, 2004: 4) claims that the unification of the conscious and unconscious results in “a living birth” that leads to a new level of being, a new situation” (Miller,2004: 4).
