This paper is part of an ongoing reflection about the way PCT (Personal Construct Theory) can illuminate artistic theory and practice, and aid progress in artistic pedagogy. It is, quite uncharacteristically, written from my own perspective as a practicing artist, and attempts to map the construct system which forms the foundation of my aesthetic world and to link it to my personal construct system in general. Why do I like what I like? Why do I make art the way I do? How can my work can be understood as an attempt to elaborate and define my construct system?
