Case Studies

Both the paintings and the graphic works done by Erzsebet Nagy SAAR are by and large related to this body and action painting by the artist. However the former are more narrative in nature, a sort of visualized form of talking to oneself.

It was Sigmund Freud who gave himself a rule of thumb: “Case studies I write should read like a short-story.” The slowly emerging images of the state of mind in the patients’ reports to the psycho-analyst ought to be reproduced in the clinical report. At the same time, though, it is the task of the analysts and therapeutics to give them a form which makes it possible to grasp the tension and strain which moved the patient. The aim of the case study is to reveal the gradual emergence of images and cognizance from the depths of consciousness and the subconscious.

That’s what Nagy does. She reveals her emotions through the entire colourfulness of expression.
