The Mysterious Landscape of the Mind depicted in Surreal Pencil Drawings by Justin Michael Jenkins

The Ripening of a Lucid Psyche by pencil artist Justin Michael Jenkins from his mind collectionThe dark and mysterious caverns within the mind lead us on a scientific journey that always reveals a new treasure or wonder that we stumble onto. With the addition of new technology and cutting edge mental practices our exploration has been more revealing and our findings become ever more interesting and promising. This complex and splendid terrain within our mind has been compartmentalized in many ways and has been labeled such things as the subconscious, conscious, and unconscious realms of this smooth, bumpy, and unknown landscape. The bridge between our mind and the structure of the universe and life here on earth is a connection that could lead to humanity tapping into unknown reserves of mental powers. This inspiring notion has also been the catalyst for various depictions of this unknown world and its connection to the scientific laws of the universe in many mediums. Many artists have challenged this notion and set out to visually explore this connection and the inner mind, both on personal level and universal level, in their approach to their style of art in whatever medium they choose.

Supererogatory Cognizance by pencil artist Justin Michael Jenkins from his mind collection
Our featured artist and the one we represent, Justin Michael Jenkins, has compiled a collection of dynamic, surreal, and symbolic drawings using his usual style and revealed some fascinating worlds that he has created from the various scientific, biological, and psychological studies and also from extracting his own deep resources within his own mind. The artist combines this personal journey through his own internal structure that has been sculpted over the years from his own experiences and humanities universal knowledge of this mysterious world and penciled twelve colorful works of art. He approaches such questions as the intuitive mental energy between people to such things as the link between the capability of the mind and our forward progression here on earth both in industry and in the materialized world. We have featured a few examples of the end result of the artists exploration within this article to give you an idea of the various angles in which he approached this collection. Each angle was viewed with a different point of view and unique idea in mind so the journey could be explored on many avenues as opposed to just one road.

The Esoteric Force of Molecular Mentality by pencil artist Justin Michael Jenkins from his mind collection
The first example at the top of this page, "The Ripening of a Lucid Psyche", explores the relationship between the beauty, poetry, and subtle forces of nature and the link to high creativity within the mind of humanity. The artist in essence wanted to fuse both worlds and did so by representing the heads as flower pot structures where the beauty and majesty of nature would grow and sprout. The second example, "Supererogatory Cognizance", explores the invisible scientific properties of energy transference between a crowd of people and between a few people. Within this work, each face has a unique personality yet all our tied and fused together by the collective energy of their minds and the activity on a supernatural level between the force within their minds and the harmonic structure of the universe. The third example on the left, "The Esoteric Force of Molecular Mentality", explores the molecular and biological power of the mind and this hidden source of infinite growth within all of us. The artist uses shell like heads to open and create repetitive effects that symbolize this collective consciousness that we all share and that tie us all together on earth. The orbs of light within these heads represent the seeds of this unknown collective power that will soon grow and plant themselves among us all to sprout and eventually fill our souls and minds.
