I paint my dream

Vincent Van Gogh once said, “I dream my paintings, then I paint my dream.” Artists have used visions from their dreams for centuries. William Blake and Dali would use their dreams to create imagery of alternate realities where amalgamate creatures would emerge on the paper or canvas.

 

Project Onward artists welcome you to their dreams of different realities, mystic visions, creatures, species, and lands of exaggerated proportions that can feel backward, upside-down, inside out, inverted, or topsy-turvey. Some are nightmarish scenes working out fears and anxieties, while others are visions of futuristic utopian societies or paradise. Everything from mundane tasks being worked out in the brain to apocalyptic visions of war and destruction will be exhibited. 

 

“Dreaming is kind of like time travel, journeying to the past, forward to the future, or is a gateway to another dimension.”

– William Douglas
