Tapping the Intuitive
June 28th - July 29th
An exhibition of new works on paper by Daniel Nevins in conjunction with his June 30th FIRST DRAFT talk.
"My latest work is a continuation and deepening of a path that I embarked upon in 2009; a move away from narrative work. It’s what I call “tapping the intuitive”. It’s an exercise in approaching the blank canvas with little or no thought of the image to be rendered. It’s a way of getting out of my head. I simply act and react to the previous mark that was made. Ordinary thought patterns are discouraged. I find that it can take some effort to move through the weight of social conditioning and access the gifts of the subconscious, but the effort is rewarded with images I can find in no other way." - Daniel Nevins
