Subconscious: Scarlet Cocoon
by F. A. Moore

Does the SUBCONSCIOUS emerge from its SCARLET COCOON while we sleep?

  1. If so, when does the subconscious rest?
  2. Can the subconscious be over-sensitized?
  3. Can we exercise the subconscious, to make it more aware?

I don’t know the answers, do you?
This has turned from “scarlet” to “nearly copper”.
Don’t ask why. Only my subconscious knows.
It’s not speaking to me, right now.
—F.A. Moore

Enjoy the art!

    I don’t know for sure the answers to the questions you pose, but I do believe the subconscious, when it chooses to assert itself, is often a force to be reckoned with and is generally the “tour guide” of our dreams. It’s the keeper of mystery and puzzles as well as the elusive answers to such things. It holds the tapes we play that have been recorded and stored from our earliest days and jealously guards them. This is merely my own personal suspicions about it, though. I find your work to be an excellent representation, especially the deep red, which to me is a color of emotion and passion. The maze could be the twists and windings that hold our secrets that we keep even from ourselves. The streaks of color…maybe that’s our inspiration and creativity? Or paths of light to understanding and the answers to your questions? I like this one a ot…’s imaginative, intriguing, intelligent, complex yet simply stated, and beautiful.

  • I love your interpretation of the streaks of color and the “maze”. That red was so driving and attractive, compelling me to continue working on this piece. Ah, so it was the “passion”. Have enjoyed reading your comment, Jill! Than you! :)

    Frannie, I love the ferocity in this, that undeniable energy and thrumming undercurrent that exists in it.
    And the colors…WOW!!!!!!!!! ::applause::

    Such a cool coincidence about Klimt, too. I just heard of Klimt a few days ago. Now you’re inspiring me to learn more.
    Another marvel. LOVE it!

  • Thank you, Robin. Klimt is a constant inspiration, and you can see him in much of my work: Life-Giver, Rebirth of Venus, The Deep Sleep, Girl on Yellow Quilt ; even Time to Fly, although that’s probably harder to see, The Golden Necklace, Night at the Museum Ball – II .

    Except for Life-Giver, I don’t start out thinking about Gustav Klimt; but end up realizing the likenesses in my work, in the midst of it.

    In “…Scarlet Cocoon”, I see the large curve shape, reminding me of a Klimt piece, while normally it is the mosaic style lights or shapes that I consciously add, that evoke his style.

    I am not one of those artists who denies the influence of what I’ve been exposed to through a lifetime of books and museum going. We absorb these things, and integrate what we like into our own style. That’s how humans learn and adapt! Klimt is an artist whose art and style I dearly love. And I’m happy that this appreciation shows in my work. And when I see it myself, it’s usually added as a tag. :))

    Thanks for your great comment, Robin.
