A. Andrew Gonzalez

p p p p " My first calling to paint was inspired by the Visionary and Fantastic Art traditions and by my interest in mysticism, symbolism and archetypal psychology. I became obsessed with perfecting my drawing and reviving a classical sensibility within a modern visionary aesthetic. By exploring the technique of letting go and allowing my subconscious impulses to come to the fore while drawing, I soon realised that my creative imagery can be used as a mirror to reveal the archetypal depths of the psyche. For over twenty years the core of my imagery has centred on the revival of the sacred feminine in an eternal dance of rebirth. Over the years, inspired by the revelatory power and primacy of the beautiful, I have come to view my work as mystical love poems to the soul." - A. Andrew Gonzalez (via beinArt.org) p
