The Kinetenik series continues my experimentation of unconscious drawing by exploring larger scale drawings as well as larger drawing tools (4in sumi brush). The larger canvas pushed me into the realm of action painting where I found myself literally dancing and jumping around the picture plane. The process begins by establishing a base structure using large energetic movements. I equate these movements to unconscious expression. This base structure is made with the largest brushes. Smaller brushes are used to make more accented marks and I equate these marks to a more conscious expression.
This is a video of the making of Kinetenik 4. This video gives you a better sense of the scale at which these drawings are made as well as the energy and movement of the process.
