If you thought psychedelia was a thing of the past, think again: Chicago-based artist Bruce Riley is keeping the art and imagery of the psychedelic sixties alive.
His work is made from poured paint and dripped resin, the combination of which creates a trippy effect that causes the viewer to stare for prolonged periods. For Riley, the art is all about experimentation, like he explained in a recent interview:
You can’t have any other intent but moving. You can’t worry about it, you can’t stop, you can’t choke. It’s obvious when it works. It’s obvious when it fails. The paintings aren’t about specific things, they’re all about kind of the same thing. And I’m not really trying to define any ideas, I just let it flow.
Clearly, his artistic process is pretty psychedelic, too. Check out his trippy work below.
