''An Artist's Journey Through Transferance''


'The Transference' was the process by which emotions associated with parents and country unconsciously shifted to the child 
and in time into the artwork ... 
 the 'Final Transference.'

Transference was first described by Sigmund Freud who acknowledged its importance for psychoanalysis for the better understanding of the patient's feelings.

Extract from Wikipedia ...
 One definition of transference is .. "the inappropriate repetition in the present of a relationship that was important in a person's childhood." Another definition is .."the redirection of feelings and desires and especially of those unconsciously retained from childhood toward a new object."  Still another definition is .."a reproduction of emotions relating to repressed experiences, especially of childhood, and the substitution of another person 
for the original object of the repressed impulses." 

In my own opinion and experiences everybody in every situation 
is in transference. It is one of the important pathological effects that go into the make-up of an artist and subconsciously will  surface in the artwork without fail depending on the state of mind at the time of making the artwork, and which allows one to grow, transform and explore as an artist.
