About Landscape in a Dream painting
Painted in 2009, This painting was inspired by the Chilean artist Roberto Matta, who coined the phrase, Psychic Automatism, which is defined by letting the hand move in response to free associations and concepts with no pre-conceived images or plans. His metaphysical paintings are rich in color, movement and modeled structures that are both figurative and organic, as well as architectural; all at the same time. It is one of the more expressive and abstract ways I like to work. This image includes water reflections, distance perspective, and figurative elements. It also subconsciously reflects my interest in the land,angels, eyes, and the figure; not to mention mark making. Custom stretcher.
