Reuven Wallack: Circles



It’s funny. In some ways I’ve made a complete circle regarding my attitude towards


creating art. Back in 1998 when I first started painting, my interest in psychoanalysis led


me to paint quite quickly and then analyze and find unconscious imagery that came out


of the deep recesses of my mind.



Now over 20 years later, my newest work which I believe to be my best yet falls along


similar lines. They consist mostly of color pencil drawings. While doing this work, I


don’t think. That’s right...I don’t think. Well for the most part, I don’t. Sometimes I


pause and think about compositional matters or specific color choice or most overall


when there is a specific object to be drawn. But other than these fleeting matters, I’m


drawing from as near I can from the unconscious. No decisions, no thought, just where


the pencil takes me. This I find to be extremely liberating and produces work which


many times turns out to be quite complex, but in reality I’m producing them in


auto-drive like the cars of the future.
