THCreativity / Part V / Psycho Active Art By Fred Tomaselli

last year


With some artists you can see the #Weed Influences in their work. One of those artists is, The Master of Hallucinatory Collage, who found a way to Take His Art Higher. He fuses and juxtaposes multiple picture planes to give his paintings their rare glowing effect.

His Paintings Embrace Medicinal Herbs, pills and hallucinogenic shrub alongside images cut from books and magazines like flowers, birds, butterflies, arms, legs and noses, which are combined into dazzling patterns that touch the surface of the painting like a beautiful virus or growth. He uses an eruption of color and combines it with a basis in humanities.

"When I started to putting psychoactive material in the work, the #Pot leaves and that sort of thing, I was really thinking about rearranging the use value of those objects instead of traveling through the blood stream to alter consciousness they travel through the eyeballs, they can be inexhaustibly psycho active"; He said!

So Who is The Master of Hallucinatory Collage !

He is Fred Tomaselli, an American Contemporary Painter (Born in Santa Monica, California, in 1956). He is the best illustrious for his extremely careful paintings on wood panels, combining an array of unorthodox materials suspended in a thick layer of clear, epoxy resin. Tomaselli is represented by James Cohan Gallery in the United States and by White Cube gallery in the United Kingdom.

Starting with a blank wood panel, he pastes down everyday items like buttons and insects to make his visions appear. But to Take His Art Higher, he often adds Illicit Substances / Psycho Active Items such as pills and cannabis leaves right into his art. A resin locks the finished piece in suspension to capture Fred’s Psycho Active Art Visions…
