Journal Juice: Non-Linear and Linear Thinking

No words, just an idea, a thought about how ideas come tumbling down, freeflow, freefall without the slightest reason for them to make sense, they just are, they just occur.  I have never been a linear thinker, it’s always about the bigger picture, the forces at play, the communion of visual blips on the consciousness.  But the idea of linear organization appeals to me, outwardly I am linear, inwardly nothing of the sort. Journaling the concept.Magazine collage, acrylics, oil pastels, spray inks.  Purple lots of purple.

    I have to admit, I love the grid side. I must be a linear thinker, or maybe I just like less chaos in my art. I really love the way you used the magazine images, and of course, the purple!

    I’m not a linear thinker either, I jump all over the place but the grid looks like a map of life that I could actually read! How comforting & directional but just occasonally I might take the diagonal 😉

    I love the way your non linear mind works! This is just as free and cool as it gets!

    Looks like you’ve got a good balance between the sides there. Linear or non linear- both important at different occations. Colour- always important!

    I try to be linear, but I fall in the other category I think. Love how your art really goes with your thought processes today.

    These pages are such a fun exploration of your concept. Generally, I think I’m more linear and the grid appealed to me immediately. I like the way the greens and yellows contrast with the background red/purple. But, as I look a little longer, I find pleasure in the organic, random side – I like the surprise of where the eye wanders. You’ve made some sort of artist ‘test’ here and I feel like it should illustrate some profound truth. However, my profound truth? I like them both and like creating in both styles – maybe there’s an icad experiment here for me this week?

    This is a really interesting dichotomy to explore. I may have to make linear/non-linear one of my travels.

    gorgeous pages and thought-provoking post.
