Picasso investigated the essence of things – what lay underneath the things he painted.
Contrary to what Pablo Picasso is known for – the abstracts of cubism – Picasso could paint with academic accuracy at an early age. He painted “Science and Charity” when he was 15.
Picasso untrained his academic self and found a way to communicate a thing from the gut, so the mere impression of a thing triggers recognition. Picasso repeatedly drew a bull in a series of reductions until he succeeded in portraying bull with just a few lines.
Get to the essence of you
The five senses tell you many things – and they are impossible to ignore! Some might say nothing else matters. Advocates of The Art of Perspective disagree.
Like Picasso’s bull, we can look beyond the surface and the obvious mechanics of our lives. What is the structure? What is the life force? These are things that reveal the motion of what we make essential.
The strongest and effortless motions are unconscious.
If we look past what affects us, physically, we can peer into our reactions – in mind, soul, and body. By observing ourselves, we begin to see what is essential to each of us in our own lives. Simple; not easy.
What is the essence of you? Only you can find that out. This is not you, per se; it is an impression of you. The Cycle of Unconscious Response is a tool to notice the impressions of your unconscious intention on your life.
