Thrice Told: The Psychological and Creative Evolution of the Artist Peter Trusler
Dr Sandra E. S. Neil, Dr Robert L. N. Silverberg, Peter Trusler
This book has its origins in a series of conversations. Instead of a simple narration of the 'art' or the 'psychology' or the 'biography' of Peter Trusler, the authors have collaborated to produce a 'thrice-told' tale. Unlike the usual meaning of repetitive or tiresome (as derived from the original Shakespearean "twice-told tale" in "King John"), the intention is to elaborate, elucidate and validate. The story of Peter's personal and artistic journey (which is ongoing) is told thematically instead of sequentially. Firstly, Peter's own words describe his artistic involvement with the themes we have drawn out. Secondly, his early psychological understanding and growth is commented upon by his first therapist, Dr Sandra Neil, as a clinical psychologist, and concerns his growing confidence with the artistic, archetypally feminine side of himself. Thirdly, the story is commented upon by myself, his later therapist, a physician in psychological medicine, and focuses on his growth and comfort with the self-directed, action-orientated insightfulness that accepts and values the more archetypally masculine side of his artistic journey. It is a single story told three different ways: 'thrice told'.
