I like Noel’s drawings where he has tried not to draw anything but has failed to completely do so . This reminds me of outsider art and especially Alan Davie who said
“When I’m painting properly I’m not painting through knowledge. The images I’m producing are not coming from any positive conscious thinking. They are coming from a completely unconscious source. “
Alan Davie :Transcribed from the film “Alan Davie” by Eila Hershow, Roberto Guerra and Wibke Von Bonin.
Alan Davie also experimented with trying to make unsuccessful compositions which ultimately proved much more successful than when trying to make good ones!
