Automatic Drawings Revisited

Roof Terrace Amsterdam

Between 2005 and 2006 while living in Amsterdam I created a number of surrealistic, automatic drawings.  After a morning of painting I would retreat to the apartment’s cupola or rooftop terrace for an hour or two of automatic drawing. I share a handful of them below.

All were created on Arches, 140 lb, hot-pressed 100% cotton paper (a perfectly gorgeous, smooth paper) with Pigma Micron pens.  I never had an idea as to subject or composition.  These drawings were all made directly with ink on the paper.  I no doubt was channeling the energy from the Red Light District in the street below.

Inked, colored or painted automatic drawings.
