Free Association

The work below makes use of the surrealist method of ‘free association’, developed by psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Free association puts the emphasis on the artists’ unconscious mind as a tool for generating images without any preconceived planning. I am considering how this way of working can help me to explore this unlocking of narrative when direct points of reference are removed. I am also interested in the way the  images are developed from the marks initially put down, and the influence that they have on the formation of the images.
