Collective Dreams: Deconstructing Purpose

Friday February 23rd through Sunday February 25th
179 Sullivan Street, Greenwich Village NYC

Collective Dreams is a show about navigating a world full of conflict to find purpose and meaning. The works on view depict one’s internal landscape - emotions like love, loss, anxiety, wonder and depression as they manifest through an inner monologue. The show includes six installations with looped video projected on to large-scale paintings. The moving elements highlight the perpetual passage of time, and many of the themes - migrating birds, floating  clouds, rolling waves - are representations of the ebbs and flows of life.

The centerpiece of the show is Daydreaming - a mixed media moving painting utilizing a digital projector to combine traditional two-dimensional art with video collage. This captures a complex state of stillness: the feeling of time passing while the world remains static. The work features figurative elements alongside painterly color fields and perspective distorting landscapes.  Drips, accidents, and sections of spare underpainting are juxtaposed with realistically rendered foreground elements, creating a depth of field and bringing focus to the figures.
