Redefining the Rorschach

The Rorschach is but one example of art as chance imagery.  Its aesthetic is perceptual in nature. Specifically, it is about the production and perception of  ambiguous imagery. It  can be grouped under the category of suggestion-projection painting along with other forms of imagery based on chance.  The idea behind the Rorschach is that the ambiguous image “hints” or suggests an object to the viewer. In this kind of art the viewer has to be able to take a hint.

  1. My name is Joyce Mahan I have a postcard with the poitrait of a friend painted by you, which was shown in the Art League Gallary in 2002. She is seated with gray hair and an orange caftan on in the portrait. My friend is lond dead, and sadly I don’t even remember her name. Just reaching out to you to ask if you are still painting. Thanks Joyce

    • Hi Joyce, you are talking about my Medusa Sculptress painting of Georgia. Yes, she has been gone for some time now and we all miss her. What a wonderful person. Thanks for looking at my blog. I hope that you will also get a chance to see my web site at I am in the final weeks of an MFA painting program at Brooklyn College! If you were in NY you could come to the thesis exhibit and catch up on my current work. Glad you found my blog. Pam
