Process Painting

Process Image Making is about the journey, not the destination; the process, not the result.

It is the spirit, the mindset (or absence of mindset) of the artist that determines this method of working.
Carl Jung speaks to this: “The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable.”
Also from Jung: “The dynamic principle of fantasy is play, which belongs also to the child, and as such it appears to be inconsistent with the principle of serious work. But without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth”. I like to offer the notions of winging it, free-flow, of trusting your instincts, intuitive or Zen Painting, or as quoted by an anonymous teacher, “Freedom is found on the far side of discipline.” Robert Genn’s “Commit and Correct” and “Dynamic Painting” also fit loosely into this approach to image making. Process work is imaginative; it is creative, in the moment work. It is not derivative art. Mastery must be acknowledged, accepted and appreciated, then pushed aside to free up this wonderful process. As G.K. Chesterton states, “There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect.”

Merged Media

This is a term I use for one of my methods of printmaking which involves the combining of traditional artist techniques and media with experimental layering of three dimensional object scans and further working with a computer. My approach is similar to my Process Painting, but my merged media work is more expanded, multifaceted and experimental.
