Automatic by Carnegriff Automatic by Carnegriff
Ink and Tea on bockingford watercolour paper
The title refers to the process of automatic drawing and writing where the hand is guided more by the subconscious mind than by conscious decisions.

Your composition looks solid - when I find my gaze leaving the work, it has enough entrance points to draw me back in. I really enjoy that I can lose myself if this piece. What I mean is, I forget that it is a drawing or that you used ink or tea or what have you, and I become interested in what else your forms can tell me. I think that a part of this is your choice in where and how you used the splotches and the interaction of those splotches with the line work.

I get a very organic feel from this. That is, I see plants and feathers and such (not literally, but the lines and shapes make me think so), but I also get an impression of something map like. I like that interplay - it makes me wonder about the relationship between these organic forms and what a map is/is used for.

Kudos!
