“NEUROTIC PSYCHOLOGY” AND FİKRET MUALLA IN EXAMPLE ART AND ARTİST ABSTRACT

Spiritual consciousness between art and creativity manifests through various aspects of psychiatry of human behaviour. The psychological structure of individuals and “ideographic” structure of art constitute the forms of creative behaviour in various situations.  When psychic sciences determine the correlative relationships between the personality structure of the individual, the creativity and the art they are in a tendency to bring the creative aspects of the art together with the characteristic structure of neurosis and tend to “shape” these sorts of relationships conceptually. Some theoreticians in art and science history have established a statistical connection by drawing the “artistic personality” near the “neurotic psychology”. Contrary to this some thinkers put forward that neurotic psychology does not play a primary role in determining the artistic personality even though it has almost nothing to do with it.

Within this article, concerning the association of art to neurotic psychology, previous approaches were tried to be interpreted scientifically if and to what extent they complied with anything, regarding the performative consciousness of the art.  In this context, Fikret Mualla who has left a mark in Turkish painting with his tragic life because of his psychic problems and the relationship of his art to neurotic psychology were analyzed regarding the “consciousness of art” with its approaches that are at issue.
