On Tuesday February 10 I went up to the studio and did eight automatic drawings.
If have been away from the studio for a period of time or if I feel creatively blocked I will do a series of these drawings. My introduction to Robert Motherwell’s work and use of psychic automatism was the fuel for the inspiration to work this way. Over the years I have adapted the process to my own visual language and materials.
I recorded Tuesday’s session and this is the link to the YouTube video. http://youtu.be/CVxz1EqmgkU. The work in this video was created with charcoal and compressed carbon.
