Day Dreams Night Dreams and Everything In Between
SUNRISE AND DAY DREAMS
I woke up one morning to the sunrise painting my wall red with its brilliance. It was a beautiful sight to wake up to and it filled the room with a different kind of warmth - the warmth of nature.
Day dreams is a group of panels that came about after working on a book called Dream Rooms. It was totally unexpected when I was playing with a piece of paper and some photocopies of photographs. Initially, I thought, I really don't like the effect, but I'll keep going to see what transpires. Well, I decided I liked the look and playfulness of what I was creating and carried on to make four full panels that are a set of rooms where day dreams happen. I used pieces of photocopied photos and recycled an old calendar of ancient maps. The words are different terms for dream and written in brown ink.
SUNSET AND DREAM ROOMS
Lately there have been some amazing sunsets painting the skies a multitude of colours from brilliant yellow to lustrous lavender. What a beautiful way to end a day.
I was playing with a piece of paper, a cut off from another piece I had been working on and discovered the Dream Rooms. I found poems about dreams and looked up different designs for key holes. I recycled photocopied photographs and an exhibit pamphlet with art by Marcelo Suaznabar (www.marcelosuaznabar.com). I find his work fascinating and filled with beautiful colour and mystical images.
The last panel has numerical numbers and alphabetical numbers of ten. The center piece has recycled pieces of ancient maps of the world.
