Movements of Desire

Brenda Pieczenik's avatar Brenda Pieczenik

Movements of Desire came from a technique known in the art therapy world as "veils". A veil is a painting that has the components of your subconcious. One takes a canvas and paints what ever one feels, not paying attention to form or brush stroke. Several colors are layered thinly over each other the first day. This process is repeated for several days until one can discern an image with in the many layers of colors. Often one can see many different images in a veil. The photograph of the painting that seems to have no form is the original veil that I found Movement of Desire within.
