"Lucid Dreams" Opening at Copro Gallery curated by Beautifully Bizarre Magazine

APRIL 23, 2021
By embracing your subconscious, you gain a different way of seeing and experiencing—an expanded perception that opens a doorway, not only to lucid dreams, but also to the mythic dimension. As in lucid dreams, you see yourself or others with new eyes; your senses awaken and grasp an experience more fully than ever before; suddenly, you find your ears are open to hear with a deeper understanding
~ Jenny Davidow, Embracing Your Subconscious
From My Dreams To Yours.These Two paintings came after a pretty long break in painting . It was good to have a few shows as a deadline to push them along. I have always like paintings of flowers and have incorporated them in many paintings. They have a way of brightening the mood in the normally dark and creepy direction a lot of my work takes. There is a playful use of elements to evoke a dreamlike image.Here in the south Spring and summer come to life with an explosion of color and variety of Flora. One of our favorite spots for wild flowers is a place called “The Pocket” it’s off Hog Jowl Road near Lafayette Georgia. It’s a collapsed cave that has the most concentrated variety of wild flowers in the eastern united States. It’s hard for all of this beauty not to make it’s way into your Psyche.
It is 5" x 6.5" and the frame is 14 1/4" x 16 3/4". gouache paintings for the up coming for the upcoming @beautifulbizarremagazine curated exhibition, 'Lucid Dreaming' at @coprogallery in April!.
“The Wakening” Gouache on Paper. This series started as a reflection on the world through dream-like visuals. Continuing the Strange Dreams series, these little gouache paintings are painted with the dark dreams that sometimes seep into your subconscious, and in this series of paintings, I tried to put those strange dreams down on paper.
Regalto de Verano/ The Gift of Summer 5.5" wide x 7.5" high, the frame is 14 3/4" x 17 3/4" Gouache on paper.
Regalo de Verano (Gift of Summer) All of the paintings are done in gouache on watercolor paper. They’re an ongoing experiment with medium and composition and the potent nature of dreams, and to me there’s a sense of poetry in the playful use of surreal elements. I think there are no deep dark hidden secrets. It’s just fun to play with the emotions art can generate. I believe color is really emotion. Color choices are made to reinforce those emotions.
