This painting was made using enamel paint as part of a  research project into colour and spirituality.  The colours were believed to be independent entities, and the intuitive technique of randomly applying paint to watercolour paper and then folding it in half would have provided access to other planes of reality.

Automatic writing and drawing was a technique traditionally used by mediums and spiritualists who would put themselves into a trance-like state in order to receive messages from the spirit world.
