Dream diary

ink_dreams

I got an advice at the Mid-point review session: make a dream diary.
In fact, I thought I already did it; I was writing notes during the day when I was able to remember a dream. I realised that it sometimes was too late and also turned into be to controlled.
Then I change my method to draw a one-minute drawing, immediately while waking up, with ink and wood chips as a tool to make it less precise and more randomly.
Since I started the new method, I have been able to capture more images, challenge the drawing style in the light of Surrealist automatism and went more satisfied with sketching especially because of the ink.

In this period, of ink-drawn-dreams, I saw a huge exhibition at Louisiana contemporary by William Kentridge. It felt inspired of WK’s use of quick drawings technique with ink. I will make a blog post later about my visit.
Yesterday I saw an image of the danish surrealistic painter Rita Kernn-Larsen in a newspaper. RKL was active painting from the beginning of the thirties and is now showed at Peggy Guggenheim Collection Venice. I noticed the objects in her paintings and saw parallels to my objects from my dreams (hands, scissors, etc.,. I will also make a blog post about her later.
