Check out this artist in Chicago who’s creating psychedelic artwork with poured paint. Bruce Riley creates detailed creatures or mandalas by pouring paint and dripping resin. His work is kind of like those ink blot tests in the psychiatrist’s office. They don’t mean anything in particular and he’s not trying to make a statement with any of them. He just goes with the flow to see what he comes up with. Sometimes it turns out great, sometimes it doesn’t. It’s all about improv.
“The paintings aren’t about specific things, they’re all about kind of the same thing. And I’m not really trying to define any ideas, I just let it flow.”
