Shrooms Playing in the Painting Process
    #371416 - 08/14/01 04:12 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

It's been raining and flushing, perhaps seven or eight times or more. There are fruiting bodies everywhere: yards, off sidewalks, in ditches, and fields. Dozens of varieties thriving. Humongus overlaying mycelium networks with spores have taken a strong foothold. I've got an old promise to make true with someone (8.5" x 11" sheet of eleven viable sporeprints of one species, clean and legal). These spores are of a light energetic visual quality.

I'd like to open an open discussion about painting and how shrooms play in the process. I don't know if Salvador Dali (Surrealism) or Picasso (Cubist) was using shrooms in the process of their painting. Is there a "shroom signature" that can be identified in art revealing shrooms played in the process? I don't know.

It begins with me sternly advising my tubes of acrylic paint, "You've got potential if you'd only apply yourselves!" (but they never listen). The first and most useful thing to learn about acrylics is they are very forgiving in layering colors over colors. Acrylics are:

(i) opaques that cover everything
(ii) translucents that mix well, especially with Titanium White
(iii) transparents that cover thinly and mix well, particularly with iridescents for metallics
(iv) iridescents such as Gold and Silver that must be re-layered for pure metals

The painting process begins with Mars Black as the wet paint with the consistency of whipped butter (made by adding small amounts of water) on the brush is applied onto the canvas over Sharpie? indelible ink line art, the stroke of the brush leaves a lavender shroom light elastically following. Tracing the traces with tracers? Fer suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure.

Once the lines are cut and defined, the canvas is hung on the wall warbling, shifting, swaying and shroom colors emerge from the unpainted white canvas regions as semi-transparent colors. These were Blue and Yellow, which I find most appropriate for revealing the context of the hidden images lost in the grooves of the lines of Mars Black.

So far the Brilliant Dioxazine Purple is done. French Aquamarine Blue and Cadmium Yellow Medium to follow, both mixed with Titanium White to match the shroom colors. And of course, already done was Cadmium Red Extra Deep in the background because it was opaque, simply.

I know there has got to be some of you guys/girls out there having had shrooms play in the process of creating art. I'm right in the middle of working out the complete color schematism. Please share, any experiences will be carefully read and considered. Even good suggestions are most welcome, for staying on topic.

I visited the faculty art exhibition at the U of Florida once and was attracted to works that I could feel were inspired by mushroom visions. I remember one in particular that depicted a forest that appeared more alive than the busy people among it. Like the trees were aware while the people lived in a delusional state bounded by short attention spans and materialistic outlooks.
The doors of perception on line somewhere describes a painting by an old master which can only be appreciated fully when under the influence which suggests to me that indeed there is a correlation between the entheogenic experience and artwork even if it is only picked up by one who has been there. I don?t know what Salvadore Dali was on and I don?t know if I want to.

I have read your post and smiled, it's impossible to explain. One thing tho... yes indeed, there is some art (as music) specifically intended to fully reveal itself with a psychedelic. Also see: a sunrise.

To be historically accurate, most people in Dali's time probably thought his creativity and inspiration came from his virgin brain, as if it were some incredible brush stroke of luck he was born with. Publicly, certainly he only drank and smoked and laughed it up to the amazement of everyone how impossible it was for him to think all that art up with only symbolic manipulation. Hence he became mythological, magical, mysterious and very popular.

Got the blue and yellow in the grooves. Proally 50 hours actual work so far. The color schematism is soooo dramatic. I want this painting to leave their eyesockets smoldering...

acid brought out so many amazing artistic ideas that my friends still can't stop raving about how much more in depth I have gotten with my drawings/pictures. I don't paint often, but I find it an amazing medium (because colors can make or break a picture). Normally I draw in just plain pencil (and do a lot of computer art) but i feel like i can express so much more through painting. I am going to start next week on a project. I will have multiple canvas's, and on the first canvas I will paint a normal room. The second panel will be about 30 minutes into the shroom/acid journey, showing how the room changed ever so slightly. The third panel will be (of course) an hour into the experience, with the painting appropriate to how hard the trip should be hitting. The fourth panel will be the peak, at the absolute top of it's power. The fifth panel will be the same room from the beginning, but with what I learned from the experience incorporated into it. It should turn out to be an interesting project, if it comes out how I hope.

We're all MADD here...

Go for it!

Opening the shroomery main page the other day, champion de championos(sp?) had a cool image, of the many cool images there, of a sunrise exploding on the horizon with a green shroom in the center of it embossed with "The Shroomery", all the rest in green. That's it! The sunrise appearing like an ICBM went off with no sound or destruction.

We so often forget our visions; capturing them on canvas makes them availabale for all to see.
