I made this sculpture out of a radiator and kitchen utensils way back in 1994. Radiatrix hung out for a while with Venus de Salad Bowl and Sunbeam Madonna and Her Winged Spirits in a shopfront at Walking the Street art festival in Newtown, Sydney. She then spent time in the 1995 State Library of NSW Australian Women Artists exhibition.

Today, those Spirits of the House are a bit dusty, scattered and paint-chipped, but still around. And ready to embrace an inspirational movie.

Meanwhile, Sally, Not-Goddess of

Art and Soul, also embraces Art Therapy – the Movie.

Could it be that she is excited this DVD plopped into her snail-mail letterbox from across the globe?

Art Therapy – the Movie

is a crowd-funded project directed by Alfonso Bui.

Here’s a link to the trailer.

Judith Rubin, a respected art therapy elder, speaks of the joys, wonders and hidden complexities of working in the field.

We see art therapy projects and practitioners from around the world. We see people in post-earthquake Japan piece together broken lives and crockery. 
We see big men in the Bronx tenderly place purple glitter on their masks of identity.
We see children of India show their vital, essential colours.
We see a woman with cancer in New York create a picture of leaping into the unknown without a net.

Art Therapy – the Movie 
Could it be that I’m delighted to watch an entire movie about the wonders of art therapy? Might this delight you too?
