The age of things is altered by perspective, Although the tables in the painting above are exactly the same size and dimensions (on the paper) they are 2 separate years in ones life..To a 4 year old child one year passes slowly as it is at that point a whole quarter of that lifetime , at forty years old 1 year is all too fleeting as it is by then become a fraction of those 40 accumulated years...

4th night
(Phonetic); ‘Feeposhishi. Besh playsh.’
..”best place..?”
“Best place to hide, no one can see you.?”..."hello?".........

5th night.
“Not for me?”... "What?"
‘homanni ears abbini’ ( northern dialect, gruff, Yorkshire maybe?)
Contact lost..
point just at edge of sleep 55 minutes later, high risk of falling off a step, or feeling leg spasms..
One continuous tone, unaltered pitch, definitely a voice..
Tapping.
“Thasapace!. What about it?... ‘Feetaposhishi’ is the best way..? what does that mean?”.....
‘homaniyeasss’. (agitated?) “ What does that mean?
Is that a question?”
.. 5.45 minutes elapse; sharp bang!
“Is that a response?”

6th night
‘Cammeachi frommeaya’ (softly)
“What”?
(Feeling of fingers bent back) “ GET BACK!!”
Laughs.

8th night
marks verified.
(Same point at edge of sleep), laughter.
Wide Awake Again. Fingers hurt.

9th night.?
Clothes cause hurt. From seeing them, I mean. Hung up, can still smell them, but that wont last. after that, nothing.
-“that’s what it means.?” ‘ YEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!’
Soft sobbing some time later (inwardly)

10th night.. 'Cammeachifrommea!'. "No, that’s not where you are! So it cant be the best place can it..?"
Single bangs, irregular, for some hours.
Hands in tight fists, legs curled up, no toes beyond the beddedges. Some nexday sleep. Wont keepittout bunnossoba..
(cavity search reveals nothing)

11th night
Read that burning it is the worst thing cud doo.

So jukeep askinnit. “ your not in safes play ta bee”..[again-one continuous tone, unaltered pitch.louder.frustrated?] Obvious distress..

Response; ‘Caaffiner’…”what?”.. ‘CAFFINERRRRR!! CAFINNNNNERRRRRR!!’

Burninis wurse vincoodoo (?)

end

Not really an automatic painting, but an unfinished idea, painted over and over until it was done.
When first attempted to photograph this painting the camera froze and had to leave it until the battery ran out, before I could switch it back on again. (though probably due to battery being low).

The artist can take no responsibility for anything unusual experienced after viewing this painting.

Forma Magica Artis,
2008, refined in 2009..

This is simply told as a story behind the picture.

1998 I first started coming up with ‘origional’ ideas or visions, striving to push the limits of imagination at the time. A side effect of this effort was that a dream diary kept at the time kept describing things that would happen afterwards. The same day; dream images would be similar to photos in that days newspaper, which may just have been looking for similarities and so then finding them, (which may be ‘off-leash’ training the mind to think that way) or a small number of random and un-regular incidents in actual daily life would take place, which were actually specific and beyond coincidence, or within a 2 week time frame; news events would mirror dreams that had already been noted previously.. Events such as the Southall train crash, the Omagh car bomb, and a case of a murder victim found wrapped in carpet in an attic, (details of unusual injuries were only alluded to in the media, but suggested a match to a dream.) Pre-, and post-apocalyptic visions were also a common dream theme at this time.(I expect these are common)..
[These things just a case of getting into a habit. ; of accessing a data stream from where time is all one point rather than experienced linear.?] The sought for ‘new’ ideas did materialise in strange pencil drawings and after a while this settled down and the dream diary got forgotten.
10 years later I was inspired to design something that was more than the sum of its charcoal ‘marks on paper’, something larger and more ambitious than I’d done before, and from which to grow from.. With 20 A3 pages fixed to the wall the design began coming together, and the unusual designs done 10 years previously fitted like pieces of a puzzle when replicated within this design..
There was a feeling of being drained and foggy-headed while making this, with colds and headaches common, and with 1 instance I remember of a feeling of being followed while walking alone..
When it was completed, being before it felt like standing near a pylon, and its ‘manifestation’ led my work to where it is now.
This is simply told as a story behind the picture.

?...Would be curious to hear if anything unusual is felt, or experienced while, or after, looking at this image, or if things that have been wanted or desired actualize afterwards… ?
