Mind Map 2
Ink & Charcoal on Canvas
The process of creating art is unrestrained and unplanned for me. I work in an almost meditative state and allow my tools and materials to create lines, shapes and colors spontaneously. As the piece progresses and the feelings and emotions within me are given release onto my canvas, I am later able to engage conscious thought and carry the piece into its final state.
This current series, entitled ‘Mind Map’, is a visual documentation of the emotional and psychological activity that takes place in my subconscious mind. These pieces convey momentum and energy which represent the constant flux of my mind. Simultaneously, isolated islands of stillness in these works reflect the peace that often interposes between the otherwise persistent whir of activity.
Mind Map II was done in charcoal and oil. Whilst it generates an impression of activity, its soft colours and curving lines create a light mood. Unlike in Mind Map I, the presence of colours here contrasts with the grey background as if to depict the interplay of various thoughts and emotions within our minds.
