Making this felt closer to how I felt when I made my first few automatic writing paintings. I actually stretched this one first though and it made the surface feel so much better. I used to be on my hands and knees scribbling on endless, raw, unstretched and imperfect canvas. The entire process felt like an extended excruciating panic attack but it also helped me release the energy I had built up. Creating this piece reminded me of why I want to do this. It’s always about the process, the materials and the energy. The only things that’s changed is how organized I am with my setup. I think I need to make a ton more of these.
