Looking Out Through The Sky by Eccentric-Aquarius Looking Out Through The Sky by Eccentric-Aquarius
Looking Out Through The Sky is a stream of consciousness drawing experiment completed over 12 hours in one sitting. It started with me trying to draw a trumpet but failing to do so I tried and succeeded to fill the whole page before the day was over.

The way the dinosaur swastikas are perceived could affect the whole mood of the image. If you see them as the Hindu swastika which, when facing right represents the evolution of the universe, the whole image could appear as the birth of something new. All the colours and patterns then become animated and flow gracefully in twine with the universe, like fresh roots reinvigorating a dormant plant from it's winter slumber. If the dinosaur swastikas are perceived to represent the Nazis the whole image becomes forced and fills with a dark atmosphere. The trumpet signals the start of a war, the child will be born into a world of infinite hate which will know no change and continue to hate forever. Trees will bleed and the sky will crack. The spirits of our ancestors will leave through the sky and never return, hiding across a fractal web.

The humanoid on the far right hill is reminiscent of a Chinese sage or Buddhist. The blue lotus around it's head symbolises a victory of the spirit over the senses and the sun over the centre (which is never seen as the blue lotus is never fully open unlike the red lotus) could mean that until we wake up and open our mind's eye we will never be human.

The encircled figure in the middle next to the 1000 eyed humanoid is supposed to be the Venus of Willendorf which is most likely a representation of a Goddess of fertility, a code beamed from the Eye of Providence, the thousand eyed humanoid figure surrounded by red is supposed to be the creature from the film “A Scanner Darkly” that recites all Freck's sins while he is in the process of dying after committing suicide and there is also a rainbow emanating from the pineal gland of the foetus suspended in an infinite womb. What these means I do not know. Sometimes the symbolism that appears in my pieces are beyond my understanding and usually reveal their meaning over time, or so I hope.

All that I can ultimately conceive is that this is a piece that had no intended meaning and is probably meant for the beholder to ascribe their beliefs to.

Photo's are a pain as it is almost impossible to get te best reproduction of paintings. However, you can certainly get a good sense ofwhat you have drawn. The colours work wonderfully well and it has so much of the psychedelic spirit. Dali said 'I don't take drugs. I am drugs.' A lot of the psychedelic esperience originally came from taking drugs, but I suspect it must be there already in the person. You obvioulsy have amazing vision. Hope the original turns up again.

Thank you :) The comments you give to peoples work are always interesting. I suppose it was always in my nature to progress to what is commonly described as "psychedelic art." Drugs are just a part of the human experience and the way they effect society is not by an act of their own but by the people in the society they are used in. I have had more intense experiences through sensory deprivation and dreaming but such things are relative. That quote of Dali's has always been a favourite of mine.

I hope I find it too. This is unlike anything I have drawn and something which will not be repeated.

No "classic" psychedelics were consumed in the production of this piece.
