1. Does "that result" refer to "psychic processes" or "fantastical elaborations of psychic processes"?


2. Does "they could be said to mine it for inspiration" mean "Bourgeois’s artworks could be said to make use of her autobiography for inspiration"?


Context:

It is crucial to resist as much as possible the tendency in our culture to latch onto words as having the power to explain art. I see Bourgeois’s statements and her work as different instances of working through childhood trauma, the artwork being fantastical elaborations of psychic processes that result in objects and scenarios that are wonderfully in excess of her autobiography, although they could be said to mine it for inspiration.

Her psychic processes make use of her autobiography for inspiration, whatever that means.
