This distinctly mid century abstract composition features a childlike play of form and lines that appear to be entirely un-representational of reality, and are therefore perhaps are a nod to the subconscious or nonconscious mind. Abstract pictures like these remind us of freedom, imagination and creativity. The artist has chosen not to be bound by the limits of reality, and has instead turned to ‘automatism’, which in art speak refers to creating art without conscious thought, accessing material from the unconscious mind as part of the creative process. This painting is reminiscent of the works by Joan Miro, who was also an artist who delved into ‘automatism’ in his works.
The wonderful thing about paintings like these is that we can have wholly subjective views on what we see. For instance, this painting could remind us of planets, comets and stars dotted across the universe, and yet on the other hand perhaps we could instead be reminded of more earth bound materials such as fossils and rock striations.
