Colin Verner Artist Bio:
I live and work in Kuaotunu on the beautiful Coromandel peninsula, New Zealand. STATEMENT Anyone who dreams, or has the ability to imagine vividly, must be somewhat aware that there is a lot more going on in our minds than what we are consciously aware of. While objectivity and reason are essential life skills in today's world, the unconscious mind can have a strong influence on our thought processes and helps to guide our intuition. This concept has a long history. It has been explored by many cultures, and a great variety of techniques and traditions have been developed to access the potential of the unconscious mind. I use a variety of unconscious processes as a creative starting point for my art. Primarily I use automatic drawing or writing to generate images, forms and ideas. I then juxtapose this material in a playful and imaginative way, until I realise something I wish to physically craft. As well as being an expression of my own unconscious, these objects represent an exploration of the history and ideas relating to this subject.
