About the Project:
Limitless, unlabeled, with no beginnings or ends, “UNCONSCIOUS” is an incessant art expression that reflects the concept of the unbounded fabric of the Universe. The constantly evolving artwork is the artist’s unconscious expression of the dynamic “micro to macro” phenomena that can be experienced in nature. The drawing is currently a compilation of 100+ pieces that is growing extensively and thoroughly. Each drawing is created by the usage of automatism techniques that allow the unconscious mind to lead the execution of the artwork.
The drawings are subjectively interdependent on the location and vantage point of the observer as each piece or compilation of pieces can be experienced and grasped from different distances and orientations. From the smallest detail every element coexists with the other creating larger parts that dissolve into one whole. Each part is left unnamed and undefined as it is for the viewer to partake, feel and define what is being perceived without preconditions.
