Christine Randolph: New Drawings

My teaching methods are rooted in my artistic process, which is improvisational and intuitive. I have various ways of tapping into my unconscious, and it is from this place that images and ideas emerge. For example, in this series, I began with Dr. D.W. Winnicott’s “squiggle game”. Each image was created with a pencil drawn squiggle. As images emerged, the series took shape.

 

In both teaching and artmaking, I reflect upon my years of experience as an art therapist and my clinical studies that included practitioners like Winnicott whose work began centered on the trauma of children who had been separated from their parents during WWII. My goal is to continually attune myself in my teaching work to the spontaneous recognition of emotions and experiences as they arise through artmaking. And to take these raw materials into further explorations.
