Invisible Realities: Finding the Hidden Dimensions in Art
Lyne Marshall
ISBN: 9780980327915
Art Clique Projects Australia 2010 A4 First Edition
  Our minds are constantly challenged to question not only what we distinguish with our eyes and ears as sounds, colours and shapes, but to look at the world from our own inner reality.

There appears to be a gap however between this inner and outer self that remains a mystery. This book addresses how this gap is bridged by artistic imagination and how the energy and emotional content that is needed to create great ‘art’ requires more than just ideas.

Written by a practising artist, this book covers many aspects of art making, including the gift of creativity, genius in art, mentorship, metaphors and how the mythopoetic meaning behind an artwork, that has a truthfulness for the artist, will speak volumes to the viewer. NEW

Harnessing the Power of the CREATIVE SPIRAL
Lyne Marshall
ISBN: 9780980327922
Art Clique Projects Australia March 2013 A4 First Edition
  In this third book Lyne Marshall puts her unique spin on the creative process, and the philosophical and spiritual side of art creation. She addresses the cyclic nature of life and art, and the way there is a seemingly invisible organic structure, a spiral, that continues its upward crusade in the course of realising original vision.

Marshall is a practicing artist and in this semi–biographical book she fleshes out these ideas in an approach that not only educates the reader to the ways of the artist but increases their understanding of some thought provoking topics. This book deals with the important issues of self awareness, as well as being useful for art instruction.

An 80 page full colour book contains many illustrations, paintings, photographs, quotes and poems to support the writing. NEW
