Exploring the gray area between consciousness and subconsciousness, Keith Hampton re-interprets the early 20th century practice of automatic drawing and adapts it to his flowing, organic, yet highly refined and controlled new work which he refers to as Automaticae. The work encompasses the artist’s own desire to explore a semi-conscious state while necessarily existing in a mindful wakefulness. The results offer layered intersections of lines, spacial relationships, and upended palettes that reference their automatic drawing roots, but finish somewhere much more direct and polished. Hampton utilized this process to create new work in the form of drawings, paintings, small ceramic sculpture, and large-scale installation to create an all encompassing new body of work.
