DescriptionAfter the first few brush strokes I thought this was definitely becoming an octopus and yet soon enough it dawned on me how little control I had over the work! Once I initiated the painting, a new entity gradually took control growing and shaping itself while I kept watching in awe, obeying the tacit commands I was being given. I was used as a bridge for this painting to be born and I expressed new comments in this shared conversation with the illusion that I would have my final say.
Enrique Castanon, Bethesda Maryland. Member Since June 2011 Artist Statement I paint to breathe and breathe to paint, social limitations become the experience I draw inspiration from, ..life. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Love in the heart and combined is how new forms manifest, organizing chaos, finding a sincere way to share the unexplainable, it’s only by the vision of an open mind we can understand, in contemplation, time and space are no more, join me if you dare.
