This experience left me wondering how could it be possible to paint the future event and what was that voice? I have never been one for premonitions-no epiliepsy, no schizophrenia, no migraines, no psychic ability. Now I was being forced to rethink this. I haven't been able to shrug it off merely as coincidence especially since there was also this strange voice! I needed to research premonitions by painting, the meaning of Jacob's Ladder and voices. This ultimately brought to me Anthony's ideas which seem to provide a viable theory of how this could come about.
My own research on prophetic paintings has uncovered three other examples:
The first was at http://www.angel-drawing.com/ where a fellow named Aster presents his and other works. Anthony I'm sure would argue that this site could be called daemon-drawing.
The second example I uncovered came from a New York Times article on surrealist painter, Victor Brauner link to article. The writer notes that "The odd thing is that for many years Brauner had a fixation on mutilated eyes, which revealed itself early in a 1931 self-portrait showing him with his eye put out. The portrait and many other traumatic eye images predate a singular accident. Trying to break up a fight between the Spanish-born Surrealist Oscar Dominguez and another painter in Dominguez's studio, Brauner was hit by a glass thrown by Dominguez. It literally ripped out his left eye. "
The third example I found was a painting that Georgio de Chirico did of the poet Apollinare. The writer in this article points out that "It was a prophetic vision. In 1914, de Chirico painted Apollinaire in silhouette with what looks like a target drawn on his cranium. Apollinaire enlisted in the French army in the first world war and in 1917 was severely wounded - in the head. He underwent a brain operation in the difficult period before his death. You add it up." link to source.
I also learned that Georgio had migraines and possibly epilepsy which ties very much to Anthony's work. I found this website that discusses Georgio's migraines and the influence on his work. link to migraines-aura.org.
There have been some very strange coincidences/synchronicity in my exploration of these ideas. Sometimes I feel like the character in Paycheck puzzling over some clue that has been left for me as when I stumbled upon this quote of de Chirico and other references to him in unlikely places, "Everything has two aspects: the current aspect, which we see nearly always and which ordinary men see, and the ghostly aspect which only rare individuals see in moments of clairvoyance and metaphsysical abstraction". I was not that familiar with dc Chirico, but somehow knew it was relevant to my experience.
Thanks again to Anthony for the ideas he has brought to me.
