What if you could paint your dreams, what would they look like? Would they look like scenes from a movie or would they be surreal? My dreams are often vibrant an d full of color and emotions. We often use colors to represent emotions; blue is calm or sometimes sad, green for nature, yellow is cheerful, reds are angry or passionate. What if you took those dreams and the emotions associated with them, and then painted them. Only this time I didn't try to create a scene, I used colors and shapes and random movements to represent these dreams. Some paintings represent dreams I've had while sleeping, others are just a day dream. Some even represent the dreams I have for myself and my future. I invite you to enjoy Dreamscapes.
I remember back when I was a hair stylist, one of my coworkers noticed how I worked with my clients. I would often become who they wanted me to be. I didn't necessarily do this on purpose, it just happens. When you are around different people, you show off different parts of who you are. It doesn't mean you are being fake or not true to yourself, it means you are being selective in what you show, molding yourself to meet the needs of those around you.
Faces represents the various parts of me that I show to people I'm around. My partner noticed that these faces looks more like masks, and I think that is a fair way to look at these. We all put on a mask when we are around someone else, we are never truly 100% ourselves 100% of the time. We show people what we want them to see, we put on a mask to represent that person.
Who do you want people to see?
"giving the impression that something harmful or evil is happening or will happen."
Just like my dreamscapes, I paint my fears, my feelings, my emotions, my dreams. Sometimes they come out in the form of the little monsters that haunt me. Self doubt, anxiety, restlessness, mania, depression and more. All represented by the pieces from Sinister.
Sometimes, you just want to paint a pretty scene. Nothing more and nothing less. You see something that inspires you to create it.
