The therapeutic effectiveness of using visual art modalities with the bereaved: a systematic reviewhttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5798551/

Findings from our review suggest that grief interventions using visual art techniques facilitate continuing bonds and meaning making, but there is little evidence to support a significant impact on negative grief symptomatology. Furthermore, we know very little of the processes by which visual arts facilitate continuing bonds and meaning making. Given the multitude of individual differences and responses to loss, future research into the increasingly varied methods of grief therapies used to address the diversity of the bereavement experience is warranted. In the next stage of research examining expressive art as treatment modalities with the bereaved, an increase in theory-driven interventions, experimental research designs, assessment of individual difference variables, and quantitative analysis should be prioritized.

The Mourning Stone Project
The Mourning Stone Project began in February 2015 and is an exploration of a chalk Downland landscape in relation to feelings of belonging, loss and shifts in time.
Jane Fox: The Mourning Stone Project
Wed 15th December 2021
"The Mourning Stone Project began without me knowing it. I picked up the stone – a narrow speckled flint on a Sussex beach on September 7th 2014. It was where my sisters and I had lain together, floating in a calm sea, immediately after the death of our Father. I held that stone in my hand, buoyed by the water that had shaped and worn it. The stone held me, and fitted my hand as if I had squeezed it that way. This was the beginning of an ongoing series of artworks that engages walking, ritual and making amidst the material and agency of landscape." - Jane Fox
Jane Fox has a hybrid arts practice that embraces drawing, print and installation. Collaborative process lies at the heart of her activity and ranges from installation works made alongside others to poetic exchange with found material. Fox has exhibited in London and the South East, is a member of InkSpot Press and has a studio at Phoenix, Brighton. Fox is an experienced facilitator who has worked in a wide range of educational and community settings, including Rocket Artists Inclusive Studio, and is Senior Lecturer on the Fine Art Printmaking course in the School of Arts and Media at the University of Brighton.
This is a really interesting project that was established in 2015 - looking at how creatives explore the process and state of grief to explore loss, place and lived experience.
I am particularly drawn to Jane Foxs' work in this setting, and will continue to explore.
In the piece above she talks of the stone she collected and walked with, this brings a cyclical exploration to my own practice, the use of the landscape having purchase on place and memory. I have collected pebbles and stones from beaches, this term I collected and dated pieces found in the grounds at Writtle to start the process of the changing mindset and thought processes occurring within me as well as the landscape response to the change in season and our relationship to this space.
The Writtle piece, hangs in the window by my studio desk, with labels. It has not been named as yet.
In a previous extension of Camino (2011) I have started discovering the different types of rock formations across the northern Spain, an idea formed to collect and categorise the location, type and photograph and collect these to be placed with the field study journal at La Cruz de Ferro where it is a ritual to place stones of sorrow that are carried on the journey. This project ahas not been actualised as yet. The idea of carrying stones, movement and deep connection to landscape, builds into the equation around immigration.

Abstract: Autoethnography is an approach to research and writing that seeks to describe and systematically analyze personal experience in order to understand cultural experience. This approach challenges canonical ways of doing research and representing others and treats research as a political, socially-just and socially-conscious act. A researcher uses tenets of autobiography and ethnography to do and write autoethnography.
Thus, as a method, autoethnography is both process and product.
Key words: autoethnography; relational ethics; co-constructed narratives; interactive interviews; narrative; ethnography; personal narrative; narrative ethnographies
