9780826178459: Creativity from Constraints: The Psychology of Breakthrough

In this exciting new contribution to the study of creativity, psychologist, artist, and writer Dr. Patricia Stokes delves into the minds of famous creative artists and discovers the surprising source leading to their creative breakthroughs.

From Picasso to Stravinsky, Kundera and Chanel to Frank Lloyd Wright, it is not boundary-less creative freedom that inspires new ideas, but self-imposed, well-considered constraints. Monet forced himself to repeatedly paint the way light broke on, between, and around his subjects, contrasting color instead of light and dark, and softening edges in the process. His constraints catapulted the art world from representational to impressionist art.

Whatever your creative field--be you an artist, educator, or psychologist who studies creativity and problem solving--Stokes shows you how to think clearly about your creative development and design the vital constraints that will take you to breakthrough.

From the Publisher:

- Mark Runco, PhD, editor of Creativity Research Journal. "Stokes' book is well-written, to the point, interesting, and practical. She covers art and the scientific theories but also offers suggestions for stimulating our own creativity. Along the way she discusses architecture, advertising, music, fashion, and literature. Best of all is the insight, well-supported by her research, that we can stimulate creativity through constraint!"

- Les Richter, Retired Creative Director from Ted Bates & currently a professional potter.

"Pat Stokes is a highly organized thinker undertaking the Herculean task of codifying the chaos called ‘Creativity.’ (Tantamount to holding a pint of water in your hand.) Densely packed with convincing examples, her concept that problem-solving and obstacles propel creativity is fed top us step-by-step until we understand how we got where we are."

- Bert Root-Bernstein, PhD, MacArthur Fellow and Professor of Physiology, Michigan State University; Author of "Sparks of Genius" and other creativity titles.

"Ground-breaking! Dr. Stokes' research will redefine how we think about creativity. This is the first book to demonstrate clearly the many ways that defining problems, inventing rules, setting boundaries, and creating constraints paradoxically enhance imaginative thinking. A must-read for anyone who believes that creativity is synonymous with 'thinking outside the box' or that artists express themselves freely, without constraint."

- Adelaide Myers, famous Chicago artist and APA presenter, artist and instructor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

"Meeting Pat Stokes in 2002 was timely. I had just assembled images from my art practice into a digital retropective, had learned that my early student work contained all the raw elements of my mature work, and was beginning to organize an exhibition inviting other artists to attempt the same exercise. Conversations with Pat not only provided language in which to framemy experience and to mine it more profitably, but also a way to share it with my students. Read in concert with Pat's earlier text on Monet, her questionnaire proved valuable in students' assessments of their own processess in a manner including their entire experience, in an interdisciplinary context. This book is a very useful tool in emphasizing the importance of problem posing in conjunctin with problem solving skills, and along the way can enrich approaches to studio critiques".

- Richard Pantell, Artist and Instructor at the Art Students League, NYC

"In reading about constraints and setting goals (some clear, some not so clear) and bringing those goals to successful conclusions (or further goal-setting), Dr. Stokes has written an fascinating book giving us insights into the creative process. As a painter/printmaker, much of this hits home as the book has me reviewing my own personal experiences."

- John (Andy) Hoogenboom, Printer, Sculptor, and Photographer.

"Using case studies of individuals working in various aspects of the arts, Stokes offers well informed and insightful analysis of the complex phenomenon we call creativity. This survey is a piece of research and exploration that is thorough and engaging".

About the Author:

Patricia Stokes teaches and conducts research at Barnard College, Columbia University, where she is an adjunct professor of psychology. However, her expertise on creativity is hands-on. Prior to becoming a psychologist, she painted at Pratt, wrote advertising copy at J. Walter Thompson, and became a creative group head at Ted Bates & Co. Her approach is that of a practitioner, applying a constraint-based strategy (acquired in art and advertising) to analyze the careers of renowned creators, to interview current creators, and to help future creators understand their own development.
