Emma Kunz (1892–1963) was a Swiss healer and artist. Born to a family of weavers, she showed telepathic, prophetic, and healing abilities early in her life and began to exercise her divining pendulum as a young adult. Though never formally trained in art, she began in 1938 to produce large-scale, delicate geometric drawings using her divining pendulum and based on her own ideas and visions—proving herself to be an improbably accomplished and even revelatory artist. The fascination with Kunz’s art has never been greater than it is today. Created in seclusion far removed from any art scene, her works exemplified eighty years ago what today we take for granted: an expanded concept of creativity that rejects the question of art versus non-art and incorporates a wide range of activities, from research to medicine, nature, and the supernatural, magical, animistic, and visionary.
