Art by Garrett  L. Berry
These drawings and paintings are my act of remaking the subterranean world of the subconscious mind. As we pass through the looking glass into the unknown, forms of color take on a personal interpretation; a visual expression of the storehouse of knowledge and prior experiences that normally stay locked away. Through these works I hope to evoke the viewer's curiosity and wonder of what lies inside the chaos and structure of our own minds.

Energy and experimentation take precedent over planning and rationality. Instead of collisions I have an abstract system of balanced entanglement; space tumbling inward. While working in a meditative state, I'm gone for hours at a time; an odd feeling.

Unearthing the dark occurrence of the subconscious, the freedom and play of watercolor painting creates its own truth and significance. Drawing on paintings with colored pencils creates a dialogue between one surface and the next. The visual allure of forms and colors creates obstruction from their density; this reduces the continuous control of the rational mind. Unforeseen images combine geometric with organic iconography, providing a powerful antidote to the composition.
