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!

Looks like an amazing stack of pancakes to me... the kind I dream about... and maybe will have for breakfast tomorrow.

(and your art teacher sounds pretty awesome.)

Such cool art! Hmmm... I'm going to have to stick with it looking like pancakes.. but maybe thats because i'm hungry. I'm sure I could give you a more creative answer if I thought about it for long enough though :). Your teacher seems pretty cool, indeed!

Amazing art piece...there are so many possible interpretations! For me it appears like dark waves at night or if you're standing at the bottom of a canyon and looked up dizzily.

If you don't focus your eyes it looks like a river flowing through an undulating terrain. This is beautiful. I love your art teacher's ideas!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today... Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Well... said...

Yup, I see a wobbly stack of pancakes. Aha, I am not sure what that says about your subconscious either, but it's probably interesting for sure! ;)
And YES to Luke Bryan! Hehe, anything country is usually good by me.
Haha and thanks Ali, I do have some pretty fierce shoes hidden in my closet...

I immediately thought of two people about to kiss, I think I'm more of the romantic type ;)

But I really like these drawings, they're very artistic!
