I often draw and paint in the “automatic” and “action” style. When I am working in this way I sometimes I start with an idea, sometimes not, but I do just jump in and work my way out. That being said, when I finish a painting a title revealing an event, an creature, a place, a story, a machine, a song, and so on, comes into my thoughts. With these titles I take those automatic abstract events and layer on cultural meaning, often adding a touch humor. I am working with water based mediums, inks and acrylics on archival papers. I work quickly and I love how reactive and strong paper is.
