While studying various eastern belief systems, I began to notice a connection between Prakritic Hindu beliefs and the notion of "automatic" drawing or painting.
Automatic drawing was pioneered by Andre Masson and later used by artists such as Salvador Dali, Picasso, Joan Miro and others. The basic principle is to create the basis of works by drawing blindfolded or with eyes closed in order to capture a more subconscious movement or message and bring it into the conscious world.
In Prakritic Hinduism (and other beliefs) there are 7 planes of existence, the 7th being our real, physical world, what they call the "objective plane". The 6th plane is the subconscious, dream world.
By drawing on the subconcious mind and bringing that energy onto the objective plane through automatic methods, I'm hoping to create a series of pieces that utilize both my subconscious and conscious mind.
