Art and Medicine
Are people really seeking to understand the artist himself - the who, the how, and the why? Do they want to connect with the way an artist perceives and interprets reality and thus creates a new reality. What if their questioning is not as much with regard to the result but the reason of creation?

Sarah Morris (b. 1967 –London). Morris has been internationally recognized for her complex paintedabstractions and films, which are derived from the close observation of thearchitecture and psychology of urban environments. In her paintings she uses colorsand geometries that she associates with a city’s unique aesthetic vocabularyand palette, as well as its character and energy. Her main interest has beenreserved for major cities and the industries, activities and behavior therein.As a result of their particular cultural, commercial, and political conditions,the cities’ appearances differ markedly, and she treats each as aself-referential system. The artist creates a montage of scenes from everydaylife, distinctive architectural features and media images that reflect theofficial image of each city, and arranges them in a rhythmically editedsequence.
