Automatic Drawings

2012

This series of process-based drawings explores how Surrealist and Abstract Expressionist techniques of automatic drawing can be reiterated in a contemporary context. Their material qualities are reprocessed using photo screen printing and other remediations, thereby displacing the mark and the artist’s subjective position with the performative gestural marks of the unconscious approach to drawing.
