The Jung Center: Veronica Dyer

The Jung Center is an amazing organization that celebrates and sustains the ideas brought forth from Carl Jung. From Wikipedia: Carl Gustav Jung (26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology. His work has been influential not only in psychiatry but also in philosophy, anthropology, archaeology, literature, and religious studies. It was his and Sigmond Freud’s writings that brought forth the surrealist art movement.

The Jung Center, which is in Houston, TX, has an extensive educational program where people can learn and apply the teachings of Jung. It also has an active art program which artists submit an application and hope to be selected. It should be a standard stop on your art map of Houston and my followers have already seen mention of it here and here.

Veronica Dyer’s (Venezuela born) work fits the Jung Center in that it has a significant spiritual aspect to it. Total abstraction is indeed what the cubists introduced into the world as a result of Jung’s writings. Dyer’s work lays firmly along the path of modern abstractionism but of a higher quality than most. What I particularly like about Dyer’s work is the building of surface textures thereby bringing the sublime experience of abstraction just A LITTLE forward into the physical space of the viewer’s reality. Note the very coarse surfaces on the detail photos below.

I believe Dyer’s work to be a good purchase opportunity because of the combination of skill, execution and commitment of the artist to her craft; she has an extensive list of experience.

You can contact the artist by email at or by phone at 832/382-0264. Be sure to mention you saw your work at HALT713, of course!
