DREAMS

Here are two seemingly juxtaposing series: one 2D and b+w, the other 3D and roygbiv. Initially, I was simply drawn to their immense simplicity. So stark but highly conceptual. An inertia within both that is so alluring. But upon closer look - reading the artist statements and understanding the artists' processes and reasonings - these lost their innocent, dream-like states and brought everything to a darker center: we are losing sight of how the environment is perishing. Perhaps we're not even losing sight, we're simply not looking. I wanted to turn away from this ... and choose something a bit more uplifting for this week's inspiration, but it's so important not to turn away each and every time we're faced with this reality. Instead, I allow this work to inspire us and to challenge us to create just as significantly vocal and poignant craft. New dreams!
