Beatriz Ledesma

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina

From her studio in the Fine Arts Building on Michigan Ave, Beatriz Ledesma explores the concept of transcendence through artwork. Drawing on her experience as an artist as well as her work as an art psychotherapist, Ledesma incorporates the influence of surrealists and symbolists as a means of unveiling the unconscious, the spiritual and the mystical through the art-making process.

Ledesma creates series of paintings that allow her to “become more attuned with the rythms of human existence and its individual and collective unconscious. This unfolding trust in the unknown shapes the creative process, which is becoming increasingly intuitive, spiritual and nonlinear.”

Ledesma holds a M.E.d. (1978) from her native country, Argentina, and earned an M.A. In Art Therapy (1988) from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. More recently (2009) she earned her PhD with a research focus on the contributions of art-making to traditional verbal psychotherapy treatment of adults.
