Primal Imagery and Instinctive Response

Art draws our attention to deeper sensations of sight, shape, sound and movement than we normally confront in day-to-day experience. Paintings inviting us to visualise scenes in a more emotive way, sculpture encouraging wonderment for shapes by creating intense form, music enticing impassioned responses to sounds, and dance awakening a dramatic love of movement, but this way of working is now understood to destroy an older experience. Creating art by chance and accident – by NOT guiding material - brings back to mind a redundant way of sensing we inherit from our biological origins, and a modern artist has to realise they will either be working to bury this inner state of mind behind controlled perfected technique, or reveal it through the creation of raw art.
