About my artwork
My drawings are an exploration of the subconscious inspired in part by the principles of Automatic Drawing from Austin Osman Spare; a process of intuitive thought by which the subconscious creates spontaneous imagery through the use of the line. I allow the line to emerge and manifest itself into form like ectoplasm emerging from the mouth of a spirit medium. I also burn elements of the drawing in the same way a magickian burns a sigil to release one's desires and will into the universe. My music and film work are also affected in this exploration of the subconscious to produce desired hypnotic effects; to provide a dreamscape of allegorical narratives. Ultimately, my drawings, films, and musical pieces provide the viewer with an evocative escape from the physical plane into a psychical realm.
