“Fields beyond the trees, mountains behind the meadows
I dream with awe

Rocks in the mountains, rivers around the fields
I dream with wonder

Faster and higher
I fly with joy till I wake up”

Becky S. Kim’s show features landscapes painted in oil in the past year and some recent portraits. Her field and mountain series are inspired by lucid dreams — dreams in which she knows she is dreaming. In these visions, she says, she sees the world from “high in the sky, flying over the mountains and rivers. When I wake up my mind is clearer. These dreams leave such a strong impression that I crave to paint the landscapes I see in them.”  In addition to the landscapes, her show includes imaginative portraits and small works. “The portraits are expressions of my state of mind and its evolution,” Becky says. “I seek simplicity and beauty in my life, and I hope to create art that elicits peace.­­­”
