Exhibition Statement:
Exhibition Tile: DREAMSCAPES
Ever since I was a child I was a dreamer. I remember looking up at the sky and being fascinated by the clouds’ movement and formations. The sky was always there for me to dream upon and provide me with joyful feelings. As an artist, contemplation and observation on the world around me is of utmost importance to my work. The world, nature and the environment move me like no other. The works presented in this collection titled “Dreamscapes” are an accumulation of my dreams, my journeys, and what caught my eyes at a specific moment in time. The art illustrates the snapshots of my visual voyages documenting my life through these paintings. In “Dreamscapes”, I aspire not only for me but for the world to return to many feel-good emotions: a return to hope, a return to dream, a return to love, and a return to art. Hence, the exhibition visually translates what constitutes a dream, be it looking up at the clouds and dreaming the day away, be it looking at a sunset that says goodbye till another day, or be it looking up at tall skyscrapers that awaken one’s fascination with splendid architecture. Dreams arrive in many shapes and forms. Yet, the most wondrous of dreams are the ones that occur when one is awake. Ultimately, Carl Jung rings true in his findings that dreams are vital in the development of one’s personality. Consequently, art has been and remains a vehicle for me that transports me to my dreams. The paintings in this collection embody my aesthetics of abstracted dreamscapes through my painterly cityscapes, seascapes and landscapes.
