Collaboration with Agent R

Leave a comment

In the right conditions, collaborative efforts with two or more beings will produce an exponential spike in creativity. This is also perfect conditions for feeling the joy of sharing in creative process, and when it works the efforts will certainly speak for themselves. Even when I create on an individual level, such as being in the studio bunker, late at night, headphones on, deep into it, I sense a presence, perhaps this is spirit, it channels through me and that is also, in one way or another, a form of collaboration. If this is something that interests you may I suggest you look up William Blake, British spirit painter and prose. Love and peace to all beings.
Fotomahaloness -fruition made possible with Agent R, we have yet to come up with a title, so untitled awesome is what it will be for the moment(s). Agent R suggested this painting is reflective of the feminine form and energy, a female reclamation, which is for me a great honor to be part of that process. It deepens my appreciation for what Carl Jung’s school of analytical psychology called the two primary anthropomorphic archetypes of the unconscious mind; the animus in myself, and for Agent R her inner anima. It is the yin and the yang, the balance, judgement, planetary influence, and the all-seeing eye, both waking and dreamtime. It is partially surreal, abstract and conceptual. We did not plan this one out, now that we have worked together we are considering a bit of a strategy for the next one. I would like to say that this kind of process sharing is healthy and healing, it is through the simple act of creativity that walls disappear.
