Conglomeration no. 1 by zyphryus Conglomeration no. 1 by zyphryus
A session of conceptual automatism, and controlled textures.

dreamlike.
roots.
what is in my head.

Automatism - I just let my mind wander through my hand. Creating shapes and faces across the page - and then defined the textures afterward.

--- Inspired by the extension of this contest, I'm submitting this to the art history contest on surrealism - although I'd like to choose a lesser used technique - one of my favorites being "Eclaboussure", which I just realized I use ALL THE FREAKIN TIME, in almost EVERY painting I create.
Perhaps I'll do another one tonight specifically for this contest.

I really do love your doodle sketchbooky style. There is something very potent in it.

And well tree naked body combination where can you go wrong with that.

This feels like the big reveal at the end of a Clive Barker story.

Greatness.

wow. you are so right! Clive Barker stories are a big influence on me, so I'm not surprised.
This piece was inspired by his books of blood. Nothing specific, just inspiration.

Thank you!

Yes, I did take a look at your gallery - lots of interesting work!
Great involvement of mythology.
why all the orange cones? very cool but ... do they say something specific or did you just end up with a bunch of cones somehow and thought it would be a fun surface to work on? :) It is definitely a unique way to use them!

You are the walrus, he is the eggman, I am the CONE MAN.......KOO KOO KACHOO Construction cones are intrinsically a sign of warning. My cones are miniature revelations/pronouncements/apocalyptic visions/midnightmares/fun size prophecies. Thank you for looking at them.
