Chaotrope Arts & Crafts is an artistic outlet of me, Swedish creative Jakob Wenzer. These are detailed ink drawings, having in common that they all started out as random ink blots or patterns on a paper, which is then intuitively developed into elaborate images. I splash, sponge or stroke ink on white paper, then search for the currents and streams in the patterns, I track and follow them and elaborate them further, improvise rhythms, add noise, clarify details. Automagic, protocosmic.

I call these creations chaotropes, lacking a better word. They start out with chance, and after being processed and readied, hopefully a sense of chaotic wonderment is still present in the finished image. For me, they are windows into other worlds, making those worlds mingle with this one.
