The title of this picture is Fugue Mechanics. I’m alluding to the psychiatric sense of fugue here—a state in which someone is apparently conscious of what they’re doing, but has no recollection afterward.
Consciousness, thinking, and brain function are mysterious, and when they go wrong, eery. And mystery and eeriness are two key aspects of surreal art.
Thus if I was to choose a single concept for all my surreal abstracts, it’d be the visual representation of mental workings and brain-states. It’s what consistently comes to mind when I look at them. However, to avoid being parochial in the poetry of my titling I seldom reflect that in my image names. There’s way too much fun to be had in other directions to constantly invoke the same concept.
