Welcome to my blog and research profile. I am Lisa, a PhD candidate doing a study on visionary art. My main research question is can we gain a more nuanced understanding of visionary art by considering the interconnections between analytical psychology and art criticism? My research involves a historical and contemporary analysis of visionary art according to three categories: outsider art, fantastic realism/psychedelic art, and analytical psychology. I have undertaken this task because the genre is defined and understood differently across multiple platforms, including websites and textual material.

My interest in this topic began while I was an undergraduate student studying Fine Art, painting. I was disappointed in how the educational system viewed and taught fine art. I stumbled into this research topic while developing an argument for why my art practice was valid! However, the more I read on the subject, the more I got confused. There are so many inconsistencies yet overlapping themes that seem to cry out for a deeper analysis and interpretation.
My blog discusses various subjects that are linked to my interest in psychology, creativity and, of course, visionary art. These articles correlate with my YouTube Channel, username: thecreativejung
