The Enneagram in Art and Life Merlin Dailey

A comparative study of the relationship between points Four and Five as artists, from the point of view of the art they produced and statements about the artist by themselves and others who knew them. This will be a slide presentation and discussion. The works of several artists, including Edvard Munch, Georgia O’Keefe, and Alberto Giacometti, will be explored from the point of view of the similarities and differences in their artistic statements and how their artistic style allowed them to speak their innermost thoughts, feelings, and aspirations. That in turn, reveals them as ennea-types. Merlin Dailey has a BA in Fine Arts from Kansas City Art Institute and an MFA from the University of Indiana. He has taught studio courses and the history of Asian Art at Memphis State University and Keuka College. He has been a practicing artist since 1958 and a dealer in Fine Arts of Asia since 1970. He completed the professional Enneagram teacher training with Helen Palmer in 1989 and has been teaching the Enneagram since 1990
