DIÁLOGOS
Drawings | 2012


12"x16" watercolor, tempera & ink on paper

Diálogos is an exploration of inner space through a series of drawings conceived of as a two-way process documenting both conscious and unconscious activity. The first stage unfolds in a ritualistic setting, employing automatic drawing as a means of acquiring subconscious activity. This is a non-visual phase in which the stylus may be employed in a non-traditional way. The line erupts spontaneously and is terminated when the point lifts from the paper; this is the unconscious communiqué, a study of the evolution of a single line. During the second phase, I make conscious choices about pigment and composition. My palette is minimal and I strive for an economy of color, preferring to exhaust the possibilities of one hue before introducing others. I use the metaphor of a dialogue to represent the interaction between these two aspects of the perceived self.
