My artistic voice and vision has revealed itself over a long process of evolution, both personal and aesthetic. The first intention is to allow the subconscious mind, the deeper hidden portions of the psyche, to express itself, much in the manner of the original surrealists. These images can range from whimsical to absurd to perverse to terrifying. I do not censor them and I often don’t know what they mean consciously while creating them. The second intention would be healing. Psychic wholeness is achieved by allowing the ''dark'' elements of my psyche to move into the conscious light of day. By depicting these disowned aspects of self, I accept them and integrate them, thus bringing about wholeness and releasing trapped energy and power. These images are often quite powerful because they speak in the symbolic language of the deep psyche-the language of dream and myth.
Biography: David Aronson lives and works in the Philadelphia area. His quirky, offbeat illustration combines traditional media such as watercolor, ink, graphite and colored pencil with digital media and digital collage. His work ranges from whimsical to fantastic, from highly stylized to realistically rendered, and has been called unique and highly creative and imaginative. It mixes lowbrow with fine art elements and often employs unusual juxtapositions. Thematically, David often delves into the realms of mythology and psychology. David is also an oil painter and has completed several public and private commissions. His digital animation has been featured on MTV2 and Fuse and his drawings are featured regularly in BigNews, the New York journal of art and literature. He has also created cover and booklet art for several CDs. He is an art teacher, working with both children and adults and teaching several different media, and was once the sole owner and operator of a small art school in the Philadelphia suburbs. He is also a certified hypnotherapist and a published poet.
