This thesis discusses the intersections of exposure therapy and art therapy in the works and careers of Deborah Orloff, Tracey Emin, and Louise Bourgeois, as well as in my own work. Artists use their practice as a form of mental healing, subconsciously utilizing essential theories of exposure and art therapies.
