Christopher Paul Brown

Everything I've done in art, video, and music has been based on improvisation and the straddling of polar opposites such as intent/openness, obscure/reveal and work/play. I expect surprise, synchronicity, and serendipity to show up in the final result.  I have likened the work to alchemy, the process of revelation in which an artist uses the power of polarities to connect to new meanings.  I was exposed to this alchemical approach to making art via a dozen LSD trips between 1971 and 1975.  Where I had once wished to work on the frontiers of science while pursuing art as a hobby, the experience of LSD showed me that the real frontier of our times is inner space and a deeper understanding of alchemy.
