For me, drawing is the most immediate way to get at an idea, figure something out, or meditate. Everything I might try to accomplish has its origins in the process of drawing. Every other creative process has barriers, often turning them into technical or intellectual procedures.
These drawings focus on turning off the intellectual processes to maintain a connection to the psyche or emotional imagination. Observational drawing is perception-based. You turn off your thought processes and focus exclusively on what you are seeing. Thought gets in the way and becomes a barrier to perception and response. This is also true when what you are attempting to observe can't be seen. These drawings represent a process where I'm trying to generate gestures or abstractions before I have a chance to think about what's going on. I find that I connect to my sense of abstraction by eliminating decisions about media. Simplifying to this extent, allows for the most immediate connection to the unconscious.
I am using a variety of methods to snap myself out of intellectualizing in these drawings. Sometimes I will draw with both hands, the way I might if I was working on a clay sculpture. Or, I will use three or more pens in one hand, generating many lines at a single stroke.
