John Anderson – “Spontaneous Journey”
EXHIBIT: February 9 – April 21, 2024
New thoughts come from new images. That is the way the deep mind speaks. A new way of seeing the world will also come from these new images, which by their nature are uncontaminated by wishes, desires, personal needs and manipulations. The Deep is always balanced and in harmony with the moment. It may not be clear what this new world image is for some time to come, but I feel we are beginning to find a focus here that will eventually create a kind of laser beam powerful enough to cut through the restrictive shell of our old way of seeing the world and allow a new vision, a new age to begin.
In his fifty years of painting, John Anderson was able to unshackle his mind, step into automatism and present visions of fresh new worlds. These images are both familiar and futuristic. They show us the evidence of an inherited unconscious idea that is universally present in man’s individual psyche and provide a guide to the deep mind.
