Auracature Art Process
The Above Carousel Illustrates an Auracature Image Appearing Spontaneously
Watch for the Horse to Appear!
It is a spontaneous drawing. The mystery of the completed image remains, even for the artist. Notice how the lines seem random and scattered and then you start noticing a small face profile and then a happy puppy and then a horse standing on its hind legs.
The challenge I face while drawing / painting Auracature Art is to not to use my own creativity. Our brains want to take over the creative process. To remain spontaneous, the artist must prevent the artist's need to control the image and intercede with the artist's own creative thoughts.
It is the opinion of some contemporary art circles that suggesting that artwork can be spontaneous is an insult to the artist. I totally disagree, the spontaneous process commemorates the art piece because the image is entirely guided by the essence of the piece.
It is an amazing process to watch, eh?!
Did you see that horse coming? I remember drawing it with my feather and not even noticing the horse until I walked away from the piece and returned to see how the India Ink was drying on the sculpted board.
The above video segment shows how I use a feather to lay down the ink. If you look closely, there are times when the quill is not touching the board. I call this method: Controlled Pouring
This is a slideshow documenting the hand preparation of the "Healing" Auracature Art Boards and Images. The collection took about 2 years to complete.
