About the artist(s)

My name is R.B. Dharma. I am a 'third mind'. I am a psychoid. I am the result of an alchemical process. I am a hermaphrodite. I am the unseen and superior collaborator that shows when Gemma Rabionet Boadella and Carlos Ruiz Brussain work together.

            The method I use to produce my works is automatism; a type of channelling that allows these artists to be able to let their hearts and hands 'know'. Only when they totally release control I reveal myself. As this is not always easy for them, sometimes I need to make them play. In the end, the uncertain and unproductive nature of games enables them to destroy all rational thought and, thus, to cross boundaries that lead them into unknown territories.

            My influences are surrealism, Burroughs and Gysin's cut-ups, magic realism, fantasy, visionary and psychedelic art.

I am also interested in alchemy, magic, esotericism, astrology, tarot, kabbalah, mysticism, mythology,

shamanism, and Jungian and transpersonal psychology.

R. B. Dharma is a hermaphrodite who has created hundreds of drawings, exquisite corpses, and poems.

S/he is a psychoid that manifests when the artistic union of the aforementioned artists occurs.

Her/His purposes are entirely unknown.
