About aleatoricart

Rolling the Dice “The Movement of Aleatoric Modern Artists is a hand-picked assemblage of 44 extraordinary painters, sculptors, photographers and craftspeople representing an emerging "period" in art history which has spontaneously occurred all over the world with uncanny simultaneity. In response to society's apathy toward the undermining of our planet's ecological balance by the ever-advancing technology of industry, every member of our movement has discovered a unique approach to art that is philosophically, spiritually, and/or functionally aligned with the laws of nature. Each of us has selflessly devoted our talents to developing a relationship with our mother Earth and discovering new ways of collaborating with her design to produce a body of work greater than our abilities alone would allow. From thousands of submissions each of MAMA's members were chosen for their willingness to "roll the dice" (the literal meaning of the root word "alea" in aleatoric) and to explore uncharted artistic territory by leaving a part of the creative process to chance. In the tradition of Dadaism, Impressionism, Abstract Expressionism and other periods representing freedom from figurative form, the Aleatoricians of MAMA view their work as a cooperative collaboration with the forces of nature, capturing the amazing synchronicities that occur spontaneously by virtue of the law of averages, and reaping the rewards of patient observation of natural circumstances. Aleatoric art is to art what quantum physics is to physics in that we've thrown out the old preconceptions and conceptual limitations that have led us to the brink of cultural stagnation. In so doing we have already begun to change the face of art. MAMA's mission is to instill our culture with newfound appreciation of art by presenting to the world an entirely new paragon, to advocate a more sustainable, all-inclusive, and limitless expression of the human experience through art than was previously attainable, and to reconnect our spirits to the world in which we evolved.” Ray Cabarga, writer and art critic at Aleatoric Art Gallery

Amazing is a word built for things that inspire awe, wonder, possibly even astonishment, though it has, like so many fortifying adjectives such as “so” and “very” been misused by attention-starved reporters of the unremarkable. “Dude, I saw the most … Continue reading

Twenty-nine talented individuals representing a variety of genre have
gathered to form a collective known as MAMA, the Movement of Aleatoric
Modern Artists a nod to the DADAists of the early twentieth century who
made liberal use of accidental methods when composing great works of
art. The AleatoricArt gallery was created in 2009 to entertain and educate
art lovers about the element of chance in fine art history, and to inspire
students and emerging artists to discover and enjoy the same freedom
from the confines of accepted artistic methods that the use of chance
represents. The group is working together on ways to promote their new
ideas and processes, which utilize today’s techniques, materials and
technology combined with ancient aleatoric means and controlled chaos.
