Disabled… ?

The other day I came across a postcard for an art gallery featuring a painting that made me think, “Gosh, that’s sort of like what I’m doing. Maybe they would want to show my work.” Then upon reading the fine print, I saw that the gallery specializes in paintings by Developmentally Disabled children. (hmmm)

the PROCESS

A lot of people have been asking me about my process for creating the New Work painting series. Here’s an example: on the left is the original photo I took of myself. On the right, the final mixed media painting, i.e. photograph combined with oil pastels and acrylic paint. I’ll be posting a video of actually executing a painting soon. Thanks for asking!

Automatic Expressionism

Since my new, mixed-media paintings don’t seem to fit into any currently acceptable “category,” I’ve decided to invent my own: Automatic Expressionism (a.k.a. “faux bouche” or fake stupid or “infantilism”). Part of what this means is that the execution of the work is completely uncontrolled. I made this deduction after thinking a lot about what I’m doing, and how I’m doing it. The actual brushwork is so lame… infantile? What am I doing? I realized that I’m just letting it come out, with no effort whatsoever to control my hand… sort of like automatic writing. It’s completely intuitive. What’s most interesting, to me anyway, is that I really like it! It’s very free, uncontrived… honest, in a way. I used to do pencil drawings like this many years ago (see DRAWINGS section). I always liked the style back then, but was afraid to really show them to anyone. Now, I don’t care. Now, this is what I present to the world. I Am Free At Last.

“CONQUER THYSELF is an inspiring story of beating terminal cancer and a practical guide to staying healthy, complete with nutrition and exercise tips. Researchers have proven that food choices can help prevent cancer and, when cancer has been diagnosed, nutrition can improve survival. This book will show you just how easy it is to live a healthful life. “

Neal D. Barnard, MD
President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
Adjunct Associate Professor of Medicine, George Washington University

“D. A. Metrov shares his unique insights as well as the practical steps he took to stop terminal cancer in its tracks, banish it from his body, and restore himself to remarkable health and wellness. Conquer Thyself is a truly inspirational story that marches on the front lines of America’s growing Health Revolution.”

John Westerdahl, Ph.D., M.P.H., R.D., C.N.S.
Director, Bragg Health Institute
Radio Talk Show Host, Health & Longevity

“Jack (LaLanne) always preached that it’s impossible to separate the mind from the body, and this book coincides with that philosophy.”

Elaine LaLanne, Fitness Expert, wife of the late Jack LaLanne, “Father of Modern Fitness”

“CONQUER THYSELF is the key to becoming whole. Mr. Metrov shares his journey of recovery from cancer with simple straight-forward guidelines; yet deeply profound. Readers can benefit from his exemplary lifestyle.”   

Benjamin Lau, MD, PhD, Emeritus Professor, Loma Linda University

From Back Cover:

In this cutting edge book, D. A. Metrov explores the hypothesis that good health is determined by a synergy of three fundamental factors: Proper Diet, Exercise, and Stress (or mind) Management.

By ingesting a nutrient-dense, non-toxic diet, your body will look, feel, and function at its best which will in turn affect your mental outlook in a positive way.

By exercising regularly, your body will maintain strength, balance, and optimal circulation which will also improve your body’s functionality and your mental outlook.

By keeping stress (fear) in check, your mind will enjoy greater joy and serenity sending positive messages to your body which will in turn maximize your immune system’s ability to destroy disease.

Mind and body work hand-in-hand to achieve ultimate efficiency… or self-annihilation.
