Dreamstacks, charcoal on paper, 18x24, Drawing II, Fall 2012
______Imagine having to maniacally draw a bunch of faces on top of each other on paper whilst being timed. Then, imagine picking a small segment from those scribbles which you must create a drawing from using a few interesting lines contained within it. The drawing that results apparently is a drawing that has accessed the subconscious mind (my art teacher is rad, okay?). And thus, thar be art.
______During our group critique, some people said that my drawing resembled stacks of pancakes, or a canyon, or two blob creatures (the one on the left is apparently trying to attack the one on the right, which has lips?). Interesting interpretations indeed--I can only wonder what that says about my subconcious. Something pretty strange, I suppose.
______But where did this drawing start off from? What ever could the source have been? Why, it was a hair line! It doesn't look anything like it, of course, but that's the subconcious-ness working it's magic... I think.
______What do you guys think it looks like? I'm curious!
