Daydream~ This series asks us to question what happens when we let our dreams inhabit bodies in our waking worlds. My paintings work to tell a story without beginning, without necessary end. These are stories wherein the viewer holds each answer in their exploration of color and image as the paintings open themselves, each a small gift, a secret private and beautiful. When we let ourselves ride in that shadow-space between wakefulness and dream, images are alive in a swirl of calm and readiness. Whatever we carry from our pasts and into our present is allowed room within my paintings. Where the crow crowns herself queen and the wings of creatures are more than we imagined, these images give us an opportunity to see past ourselves and into what we wish.
Thus far, Daydream is a 36 piece series in which acrylic paint is applied to stretched canvas. The abstract background in each piece consists of a variety of textures, stamping, and a blend of bold, earthy tones achieved through use of a variety of carved vegetables. The images are inherently organic and speak to a collective creative consciousness, both through the execution from mind-to-canvas, and through their interpretation from canvas-to-mind.
