WOMEN, TRAUMA & VISUAL EXPRESSION
by Amy Stacey Curtis, foreword by Patricia Reis

2005, ISBN 0-9763567-0-8, LCCN 2004099442, 256 pages, perfect-bound, includes 23 half-tone plates, notes, selected bibliography, index

Drawing from extensive research, ambitious surveys, interviews, and personal experience, Amy Stacey Curtis focuses on how and why women visual artists who have experienced trauma communicate trauma through their work process and imagery.

WOMEN, TRAUMA & VISUAL EXPRESSION compares the lives and work of nine women artists: four from our past--Artemisia Gentileschi, Kaethe Kollwitz, Frida Kahlo, and Eva Hesse--and five contemporaries, including Curtis herself, from Chicago, Washington State, San Francisco, New Jersey, and Maine.

Curtis discusses personal, cultural, and collective trauma, the anatomy of trauma, the history of women's trauma research, the artist's work process and connection to audience, trauma's content, symbols, patterns, and archetypes, trauma and "trauma art" as stigma, and the collective visual manifestation of coping mechanisms used to survive trauma.

Curtis received her MA in Art and Psychology from Vermont College of Norwich University in 2000, and in 2003, proposed/juried "Women, Trauma & Visual Expression" at Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, an international exhibit featuring work by women who have experienced trauma.
