Bruegel, by Allyson Grey, 1980
watercolor on paper, 30x22in.
Dear Edgar,



Thank you so much for asking about the painting, “Bruegel” & my work in general. Truly, Alex named the piece “Bruegel” because of the “worlds-within-worlds” riot of chaos, order and spectral color. The vision was completely inspired and derived from my psychedelic experience, but did I really SEE that very image or pattern of squares in my mind’s eye while activated? I rather think the complexity, hard edged equanimity of all color was conceptualized out of my intuitive awakened mind. Multi-colored fractalized systems are building and falling apart in a cascade of simultaneous creation and destruction, beautifully and without conflict... a ceaseless becoming also known as LIFE.



It is an honor to be asked about ones artwork. Thank you so much for writing.



Love,



Allyson
