She is so glad as if she is defeating the repressions, she is
hurting her mother, like into a tears of despair of an angel.


What's in my mind

I have such pressed thoughts in my mind, everything is so simple! I would see myself in the middle of Freud's practices of free associations and the Jung's relations over the sexual repulsion; I would see myself between the Descartes's energetic whirls and Mesmer's research about electromagnetic fources that unite the people to the worlds!

I believe in the existence of a collective unconscious, and I believe in one public property of archetypical images common all humanity!! But even, in the automatic writing and drawing! That they develope as a way of dictating thoughts and fantasies without the control of the mind.

I am in the middle, free without bonds, alive, I can fly but, fly as a unforeseen birth... just through relaxation techniques, unconscious ideas an others artificial states of the mind, I can get a great source, and an energetic psychic position... is just that the way... the thoughts were allowed to flow onto the paper or canvans.

I do not believe so much in the pre-constituted ideas, I believe to some extent in the energies, in the pulsions and in the carnal uncosciouses!! There is something such wild and material in Proust when he tolked about the humans repulsions; there is a tale about the defloration of a young girl: the two bodies interpenetrating, as if they are losing the control of real! She is so glad, as if she is defeating the repressions, she is hurting her mother, like into a tears of despair of an angel. Something that we can not quite make out...

I could describe the process of my owen artwork: in the first, physically, you must make a void in yourself! Automatically the mind take its source in the unconscious. The first graphic apparitions on the paper are pure gesture, rhythm, incantation, and as a result pure scrawl! In the second phase the image that was latent reclaims its rights!!!
