In Sandra Indig’s book titled Talking Colors: Seeing Words/Hearing Images, there is no division between painting and poem. Line, color, and form are alchemized through language. These lyrical visual and written works explore the artist’s family history in Eastern Europe and in ancient and modern Israel. Indig constructs her powerful images and poems out of a deeply felt spiritual core.
Talking Colors: Seeing Words/Hearing Images by Sandra Indig, is published by MindMend Publishing.

About Talking Colors: Seeing Words/Hearing Images
This book is for those readers who have a strong interest in creativity and the creative process from the perspective of the artist/analyst. Wrapped in colors, lines, textures, and words is the fascinating, ambiguous, often mysterious story of a life told through images associated with words and words associated with images.
The collection draws from aesthetic, spiritual concerns and those of science and psychoanalysis. Implied, often veiled, ambiguous reference to numerous modalities of expression bring to the level of consciousness both personal and universal emotions often as not, hidden and unspoken. With deeply felt humility, Indig goes to the edge of mythic-poetic worlds and dares her readers to look into the abyss for darkly hidden jewels adorning the cloth of humanity.
Indig’s chapter, “Reclamation and Restoration: Heroes in the Seaweed”, is included in “Art, Creativity, and Psychoanalysis: Artist/Analyst” edited by George Hagman, Routledge Press.
