Steady Halstead Kansas is a monotype print produced during the Brick Street Arts & Crafts Festival in Halstead, Kansas, on August 8, 2015. It was created while practicing a mindfulness meditation, a practice intended to increase awareness of one's experience from moment to moment.
I used automatistic mark-making while practicing this meditation. Developed by Surrealism artists like Andre Masson, automatism is a method of mark-making in which the artist works while not thinking about anything in particular in an effort to reveal the subconscious or unconscious.
