Black is associated with power; 
elegance; formality and mystery.

X

Black denotes strength and authority;
it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color.

X

In heraldry, black is the symbol of grief.

X

Black was one of the first colors used by artists
in neolithic cave paintings.

Yellow is a symbolic color that brings joy and delight. 
The third chakra, located at the solar plexis,
is said to be yellow.

X

The
“solar plexis”
is associated with the power of the sun (solar-sun).
Yellow, then, is associated with positive thinking.

X

The solar plexis is where we/I gather
y/our/ my courage
and
y/our/ my will power.

The yellow color I selected for

BLACKMOVESYELLOW

series shifts suddenly, and slowly,
the color vacillates from gold to citron
depending on the  source/ intensity of the ambient light
and the position of the viewer to the work.
My art needs an actual encounter.
It IS a performance that needs to be witnessed/ experienced.

X

I mixed several variations of yellow like a sound engineer working with a sonic.
Refining.
Refining.
Discerning.
Refining.
Discerning.

Touchstone.

X

My art is silent sonics.
You listen to it with attentive, receptive open palms.
The space is the silence between the notes.

X

Each painting is a composition of disparate parts:
 filmic + sonic + poetic.

X

The line quality resonates with rené marie’s
 flowing/ deepening  sonic grace of her voice.

rené marie  and her band improvised on my writings when she was @ the Dakota.
Astounding.

Then there is Charles Lloyd’s sonics:
a testament of the presence of the sacred.

X

I listened to Charles’

WILD MAN DANCE

as I worked in the studio over and over and over and over and over and over and 
over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over…

X

Charles’ art is always a revelation,
a harkening of ALL that is only visible
to the heart, by/ for the beloved
and calls out what is luminous in y/our my soul.

X

His sonics are one continuous river of reverence.
Blessing the wild.
Blessings of the serene.
Blessed are the explorers who listen to the Oracle of Delphi and hold a divining rod.

THE AUTOMATIC MESSAGE

Camille LeFevre

X
“In the best abstract art,

the personal is universal,

the abstraction an archetype,

and simplicity a statement of complexity.

How the artist’s psyche plays into this methodology

is the subject of Instinct Gallery’s “The Automatic Message,”

which takes a cue from that famous surrealist Andre Breton…”

I dedicate my offerings in THE AUTOMATIC MESSAGE exhibition to:
the late Dr. Mark B. Coventry; my late parents;
my heart family, who sustain me and are my hurricane lamps,
and
to my collectors
whose refined sensibilities could hear
the song, hymn and gospel of my art.

A special thank you to Peter Hannah; Justin Hedstrom; Jim Ross;
Michele Jansen; Kevin Barnes; John Schuerman; Martina Priadka; Brittany Wallman and Lowell Pickett.
