Caladan Gallery has selected the following from my 20/20 series for inclusion in the upcoming exhibition "Dreaming in Pursuit of Memory": "Deaux Gares"
"Lost in the Bois"
"Neptune and Salacia"
the gallery notes, "It is really amazing, for lack of a more descriptive and appropriate word, how many submissions we received that took this idea and extended it far beyond conception and expectation. Accordingly, many of the images depicted daydreams, something we hadn’t considered or pondered in the realization of this exhibition, which delights us; indeed, the daydream many times is centered above and on our memories. This causes us to ask the question "What is the difference between a dream in sleep and that which manifests in the light of day? What is the arrangement of the brain cells of memory that form to create these dreams?" Endlessly fascinating, within the upcoming exhibition are some answers." The dates for the on-line posting of this exhibition will be May 10 – June 14, 2009. After that, the exhibition will be available for viewing as an archive for a number of months.
There is a website called Abstract Exposure that has periodic online exhibitions. The point is to get noticed online as a competitor and there is a small prize for the winner. Check out the current exhibition..........as I am showing there.
Throughout recorded history, man has explored the connections between his perceived world of events, emotions and environment. He has utilized music, art and literature as a voice of expression. The beauty and rhythms of these connections seem to synchronize and play out over time to form a significant socio-cultural record. My work is a record of the connections and relationships that I have discovered within my own perceived world, through music, art and literature. This process may start on a somewhat literal level but it soon evolves into new discoveries and interpretations unbounded by conventional time. My marks and imagery form the rhythm of this dialogue.
