Psycho dramas in shades of red
When I am working with gouache on a brush, using my elbow and shoulder in the motion , I conjure images from an emotional, psychological place. When drawing with a pencil, I use my wrist and bring about image making from an intellectual place.
In my sleeping dreams, the landscape is often shaded dark red . Using deeply colored paper premakes the place, which is most of the work. All I have to do is inhabit the red space with marks and dots which come together as archetypes or places where the archetypes may crawl from.
After so long of using every color, I am happy to have reason to use predominately one color. Working with one color gives all the power to that shade. All dots and every mark has purpose.
