Reception: Saturday, October 18, 5 to 7 pm

Two paintings from my new Topography of Dreams series are included along with many works by the growing community of Fountain Street Fine Art members and artist friends.

In these small 8 x 8 inch mixed media dreamscapes I use playful diagrams to explore the ephemerality and sturdiness of memory alongside the sudden swooping connections between experience, story, imagination and dream. I begin with puddles of paint pressed between two panels to create mirror images textured with the tension of separation. These shapes overlap, collide and sail apart in a mutable dance of color and form. Bright colors on the back of each panel reflect a subliminal aura around each painting.

The painting titles are drawn from Mircea Cărtărescu’s sweeping oneiric novel, Blinding, the first of a trilogy to be recently translated from Romanian to English.
