In this piece Batcules explores the intuitive technique of automatism to find community within a personal vision set in a fluid abstract landscape setting. This is a departure from Batcules’ analytical tendency toward mathematically calculated imagery. The idea is to set freedom in motion to open spontaneous creative pathways synonymous with a form of meditation or an art therapeutic release from thinking too hard.
Historically, automatism was the surrealist trend toward spontaneity and intuition and is defined as the act of painting through the suspension of the conscious mind to release subconscious images. The act is truly liberating and accessible to all people at all levels of creative expression. Batcules has a goal to teach people how to release through the production of automatic art. Stay tuned for upcoming 2019 classes and events.
