I like John’s work a lot, and he really does ‘work in a wide variety of media’! He also posts articles on other artists that interest him, on his website: http://johnclinockart.com/
I am a visual artist working in a wide variety of media. My recent retirement from over 20 years of teaching art has given me the gift of time that I am using fully and passionately to revisit and rediscover my own artwork and who I am as an artist.
My artwork, and much of my writing, is influenced by the surrealist concept of Automatism and the images I create result from a convergence of chance, observation and total surrender to and acceptance of the intuitive process.
I initiate each art piece by spontaneously layering the working surface, a ritual that evokes subconscious images. I then paint, draw or collage and the images appear. I have no initial judgement and I honour and nourish the figures and forms that emerge.
When successful, the resulting works contain elements of mystery, paradox and magic; and are open enough for viewers to discover and reflect their own story in what they see and read.
